UK-headquartered Cavendish Nuclear has successfully secured a contract in Canada to deliver consultancy services to support licensing of a used fuel transportation package and assessments for long-term used fuel storage.  

Cavendish Nuclear, part of the Babcock International Group, was contracted through a strategic partnership with Calian Nuclear, a Canadian nuclear solutions provider.

Work is already underway against the scope, which includes the delivery of fuel burn-up calculations and specialist nuclear materials assessments to underpin the relevant safety cases.

Mike Whalley, president of Babcock Canada said, “As a leading player in the nuclear industry in the UK, we look forward to being able to apply our knowledge and expertise in these areas in Canada as future opportunities come to market. “Cavendish Nuclear is experienced in providing services across all aspects of the nuclear energy life-cycle, from design and build, through operations and maintenance, to decommissioning, waste management and remediation.”
