Keltbray, the UK’s leading specialist construction engineering and infrastructure services provider, has been awarded the contract to provide a development platform and supporting infrastructure on one of Sellafield’s latest major projects.
The delivery of the contract, valued at £17 million, is another milestone in Keltbray’s strategy to build a significant presence in the UK nuclear sector, and follows the recent announcement of the Group’s appointment onto the £485 million Magnox Decommissioning and Asbestos Removal Framework.
The scope of works will see Keltbray deliver a development platform in preparation for the follow-on construction of Lightly Shielded Store 1 (LSS1), a PPP-led project within Intermediate Level Waste East Zone. Keltbray will also provide a new access road and drainage to the LSS1 site and temporary utility supplies to both the LSS1 construction plot and the adjacent temporary accommodation plot.
The former nuclear-power-generating and nuclear-waste-reprocessing site at Sellafield includes a diverse range of more than 200 nuclear facilities and over 1,000 buildings. The PPP framework covers around 25 major decommissioning projects with work packages let to delivery partners like Keltbray, under NEC contracts.
Chief Executive Officer, Darren James commented: “We’re delighted to be selected to deliver this critical contract, which will showcase our expertise in delivering to a high specification in safety-critical nuclear environments.
“Working together under this highly innovative enterprise framework will help to create a clean and safe environment at the Sellafield site for future generations, improve sustainability and provide continued support for the local economy and communities.”
David Sloyan, Operations Director at Keltbray, said:
“Winning this contract represents major strategic progress for Keltbray, and we are delighted to have been selected for the work after a rigorous tendering process. Through this early engagement, we have been able to consistently prove we can provide working solutions to nuclear industry challenges across the UK, and we will again showcase the capabilities of our fantastic team through this contract with PPP for Sellafield Limited.”
