Amec Foster Wheeler wins nuclear waste framework contracts worth £4m
- Environmental safety case and waste characterisation work for LLW Repository Ltd
- Award reflects high value placed on technical expertise
Amec Foster Wheeler has secured two framework contracts from the company that manages the UK’s lower level radioactive waste.
The awards, from LLW Repository Ltd (LLWR), cover environmental safety case (ESC) services and waste characterisation and assurance support (WCASS).
LLWR operates the UK’s Low Level Waste Repository in West Cumbria on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and also oversees the management of lower activity waste throughout the country.
As part of the ESC framework, Amec Foster Wheeler has been appointed as the single supplier for hydrogeological and geological support, and as one of four suppliers for general technical support. It is estimated that the contract will generate approximately £2 million in revenue over the next four years.
The WCASS framework, which is expected to be worth about £2 million over four years, will see Amec Foster Wheeler providing analytical support services and environmental monitoring support from its full-service analytical laboratories.
The award of these frameworks reflects the high value placed on the technical expertise of our people. LLWR has been a valued customer for many years and our understanding of their business enables us to play an integral part in the cost-effective management of UK waste streams. These wins advance Amec Foster Wheeler’s strategy to expand our share of work on radiological and waste management programmes in Europe.
