Keltbray, the UK’s leading specialist construction engineering and infrastructure services provider, has been selected as one of nine suppliers on a £485 million framework contract for the delivery of complex nuclear infrastructure decommissioning and asbestos removal services across all 10 reactor sites, two research sites and one hydro-electric plant, all operated by Magnox on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
The framework is initially for four years with options to extend up to a further two years. The framework scope covers demolition and deplanting, turbine hall cleaning, removal and treatment of radioactively contaminated plant, including cooling ponds and water treatment facilities.
This work complements Keltbray’s rapidly expanding portfolio of multi-disciplined infrastructure activities already being undertaken in pursuit of the UK’s transition to a lower carbon, more secure energy future.
Similarly, it underpins the group’s strategic drive to increase its involvement in regulated infrastructure markets, like nuclear, which have been prioritised for major Government investment over the next 10-year period.
Keltbray’s Chief Executive Officer, Darren James, said:
“We are delighted to have been selected by Magnox as part of this safety-critical framework contract. Our role in the framework highlights Keltbray’s growing strengths in the design, delivery, maintenance and decommissioning of highly regulated infrastructure assets.”
Managing Director of Keltbray’s decommissioning business, Bob Johnstone, commented:
“This award concludes a year of intensive tendering by our project team, and we are delighted to be once again partnering with Magnox to fulfil their requirements to safely and securely deliver these site closure programmes.”
