Magnox has awarded a framework contract worth GBP304m to the specialist contractors for de-planting, demolition and bulk asbestos removal across ten nuclear reactor sites in the UK.
Magnox is the operator of nuclear sites that are owned by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
The company has established a framework model including a number of specialist contractors including Doosan Keltbray Consortium, Celadon, Erith, Squibb/LVI Group, Nuvia, EDS/Kitsons
Magnox will commence the work at the sites of the UK's first generation of nuclear power stations in the coming months.
The work will begin with the de-planting of the boiler houses at Bradwell Site in Essex and the demolition of admin and ancillary buildings at Dungeness A Site in Kent.
Magnox Program director Alan Bladon said the contract enables the company to outperform its decommissioning plans by building long term supply chain relationships, learning from experience.
