Amec lands £160m contract for Sellafield

Amec news

Amec Foster Wheeler has won a £160million deal for the Sellafield nuclear site in Cumbria.

The firm landed the deal alongside Interserve under the banner OneAIM.

The firms will manage the engineering support services for asset care and maintenance for the site over the next four years.

Clive White, president of Amec Foster Wheeler Clean Energy, said: “Winning the Operations Site Works framework reflects our strategy to extend the range of services we provide to Sellafield Limited.

“We welcome the opportunity of taking a greater role in the full project lifecycle, focusing on delivering safe, efficient and predictable outcomes and supporting Sellafield Limited in its cost-efficiency objectives, while also having a positive social impact on communities, skills and growth in Cumbria.

“The combination of Amec Foster Wheeler and Interserve creates a highly capable vehicle that will work to bring international best practice and value-driven solutions to the Sellafield mission.”

OneAIM’s participation in the full project lifecycle is designed to produce greater cost-efficiencies for Sellafield Limited, the company responsible for reprocessing, decommissioning and nuclear waste management.

Interserve president Guy Bruce added: “Having worked in the nuclear sector for more than 65 years, we’re extremely well equipped to deal with the challenges that operating in such an environment presents. Our team of experts carry out their day-to-day responsibilities with the level of precision and care required at a reprocessing plant, using their skills and knowledge to manage customer projects in a safe and efficient way.

“The nature of work at Sellafield also requires flexibility to scale up activity to deliver complex multidisciplinary projects. Our longstanding relationship with Sellafield has given us an in-depth understanding of its unique needs, allowing us to work with our partners Amec Foster Wheeler to tailor the service we provide.”

The Sellafield site in West Cumbria, formerly home to the world’s first commercial nuclear power station, processes and stores waste from the UK’s operational reactors and from nuclear power plants overseas.
