Costain Group and Balfour Beatty have today been identified as the organisations who will deliver all this type of project work, including: the design, construction and maintenance of permanent buildings and structures, infrastructure maintenance and extension work incorporating construction, civil engineering structures and ground work projects. The framework will run for an initial five years with the potential to be extended up to a further five years.
Magnox Programme Director, Alan Bladon, said: “Construction, infrastructure and maintenance will form a major part of the work to deliver Magnox sites into a state of care and maintenance. Most people associate decommissioning with demolition, but there is also a requirement to build additional facilities which will help reduce the hazards associated with the legacy from nuclear generation on our sites.”
Mel Jones, Magnox Commercial Manager, added: “This framework helps us ensure we have the appropriate support from the supply chain and represents value for our customer, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, and the UK taxpayer. This contract builds on the success of the recent £304 million deplanting, demolition and asbestos removal contract.”
