Shepley picks up £26m Sellafield deal

6 Dec 11 Cumbria-based Shepley Engineers, part of the Renew group, has been named sole contractor for a new major installation framework agreement at Sellafield.

The framework has an indicative value of £26m over the next four years.

The appointment by the Integrated Project Team, comprising Sellafield Ltd and ACKtiv Nuclear, is associated with hazard reduction within the first generation Magnox storage ponds. This is a priority area within the work programme at the site that will require a range of engineering support.

Shepley is already the largest mechanical and electrical contractor at the site. This new framework is in addition to its existing multi-discipline site-wide decommissioning and demolition framework, as well other major projects that it is involved with at Sellafield.

Renew has also announced that the three framework deals for land remediation that subsidiary VHE signed with National Grid will have an anticipated annual spend of more than £30m. These frameworks are for an initial period of three years, starting in January 2012, with provision for further extensions up to five years in total.  These appointments comprise both of the design and build frameworks, North and South, along with the small works framework nationally.

Renew chief executive Brian May said: "These new framework appointments reinforce our already strong Engineering Services forward order position. The recently announced government commitment to infrastructure funding confirms the board's confidence that Renew's position as an Engineering Services Group supporting UK infrastructure will provide sustainable, profitable growth in 2012 and beyond."
