AMEC awarded Magnox contract

AMEC has been awarded a framework contract by Magnox Limited to provide nuclear consultancy services at their sites across the UK.

The two-year contract, the value of which has not been announced, will see AMEC provide both specialist nuclear and safety case services across the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s (NDA) estate. Magnox Ltd operates 10 sites (on behalf of the NDA).

The framework contract will give Magnox access to AMEC’s expertise in a wide range of capabilities in radioactive waste, chemistry, physics, sludge handling, encapsulation of waste, contaminated land studies, characterisation, technical option studies and safety case services. Via the framework, Magnox will also be able to utilise AMEC’s test rig and laboratory capabilities and specialist site teams such as remote sampling and handling.

“This is the latest in a number of contracts we have been awarded by Magnox and illustrates the strength of our relationship with one of our key customers,” said Clive White, Vice President of AMEC’s Power & Process Europe business.

“We are confident that our global team of 1500 technical and nuclear experts across a wide range of disciplines, together with our extensive facilities and recognised project management skills, will support Magnox to deliver their programme.”

Sue Walker, Magnox Ltd’s Commercial Manager for Collaborative Procurement said: “AMEC is one of several suppliers who have been awarded framework contracts to supply specialist nuclear services. We look forward to continuing our excellent relationship with AMEC and are excited about developing a strong partnership to help us deliver our programmes in a safer and faster way, whilst delivering value for our customer.”
