Preferred bidders selected for Sellafield project partnership
Four organisations have been chosen as preferred bidders for a 20-year partnership set to revolutionise project delivery at Sellafield.
The Programme and Project Partners model will establish long-term relationships to deliver the site’s decommissioning programme.
Sellafield is home to one of the most complex portfolios of construction projects in the world, stretching over many decades.
The new approach will support the transformation of the company from a nuclear operator into a world leader in environmental remediation.
It is designed to support faster, more effective project delivery, stability in design and construction supply chains, greater workforce flexibility, and local economic benefit.
The partnership is made up of four lots.
Preferred bidders are:
- Integration – Kellogg Brown and Root Ltd
- Design and Engineering – Wood Nuclear Limited
- Civils Construction Management – Morgan Sindall Construction and Infrastructure Ltd
- Process Construction Management – Doosan Babcock Ltd
Martin Chown, Sellafield Ltd supply chain director, recently (15 March 2019) said:
The Programme and Project Partners marks a major step-change in the way we deliver major projects and ultimately our clean-up mission.
It will revolutionise our relationship with the supply chain and ensure projects are delivered safely, quickly, and cost effectively.
The new approach will provide 20 years of sustainable employment in the design and construction supply chain and enhance the skills of the workforce.
The Programme and Project Partners is fundamental to our aspiration to develop and maintain internationally respected centres of nuclear expertise in our local communities.
There will now be a stand-still period prior to contract finalisation and award, during which we will be unable to comment further.
