LLWR awards multi-million pound metal framework contract
The new framework is to provide expertise across the full metallic radioactive waste lifecycle and is worth up to £65 million.
LLW Repository Ltd (LLWR) is pleased to announce the award of a 4 year framework contract, worth up to £65 million, for the treatment of radioactive waste to the following suppliers:
- Active Collection Bureau
- Augean Treatment
- Cyclife UK
- Tradebe Inutec
- Urenco Nuclear Stewardship
The scope of the new framework is to provide expertise across the full metallic radioactive waste lifecycle including: project management, expert advice, characterisation, site preparations, dismantling, transport, segregation, treatment, and disposal.
LLWR has more than 10 years’ experience of successfully working with nuclear industry customers to deliver solutions across the radioactive waste lifecycle and provide access to the full range of treatment, logistics, and disposal techniques and technology in the UK, Europe, and globally.
David Rossiter, Head of Waste Management Services for LLWR, said: “This new framework increases the capability available to our customers. It enables the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority group, and wider UK nuclear industry, to access the full range of world-class capability required to effectively deal with the UK’s nuclear legacy and enhances value for money for the taxpayer. I am very pleased with the breadth of expertise and the calibre of supply chain companies available under this new framework”.
LLWR is leading the implementation of the UK Government strategy for the management of solid low level radioactive waste from the nuclear industry and enabling the delivery of the NDA’s strategy for hazard reduction and site restoration. LLWR has been involved in several ground-breaking projects, supporting customers by providing innovative waste management solutions.
At the heart of LLWR’s mission, to manage all lower activity wastes arising from the NDA’s decommissioning programme, is the provision of treatment and disposal services that provide alternatives to disposal and preserve the capacity at the Low Level Waste Repository.
Since 2010, LLWR has recycled over 12,000 tonnes of metal and contributed to significant skyline changes across the nuclear industry and cost savings of £30 million. Safely recycling radioactive metal is a proven technique contributing towards the sustainability objectives of the nuclear industry - already reducing its carbon footprint by over 40,000 tonnes of CO2 to date.
