Amec Foster Wheeler wins UK nuclear waste contracts

Amec Foster Wheeler has secured two framework contracts from the company that manages the UK’s lower level nuclear radioactive waste.

The awards from LLW Repository cover environmental safety case services and waste characterisation and assurance support.

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 environmental safety case 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 à‚£2m in revenue over the next four years. à‚ 

The waste characterisation and assurance support framework, which is also expected to be worth about à‚£2m over four years, will see Amec Foster Wheeler provide analytical support services and environmental monitoring support from its full-service analytical laboratories.

Andy White, vice-president for decommissioning at Amec Foster Wheeler’s Clean Energy business, said: “These wins advance Amec Foster Wheeler’s strategy to expand our share of work on radiological and waste management programmes in Europe.”
