Costain joint venture lands £67m nuclear contract

A joint venture of Costain, Amec, Jacobs and Babcock has been awarded a £67 million contract to provide decomissioning work at the Trawsfynydd site in North Wales.

The work has been awarded to the ACTUS joint venture as part of an Intermediate Level Waste framework contract and involves decommissioning across three waste streams  - solid wastes, wet wastes and fuel element debris enhanced retrievals at Welsh site.

Costain infrastructure managing director Darren James said: “This is just the start of the next series of challenges similar to those the team has already successfully navigated at Trawsfynydd.”

“ACTUS understands the bar is now raised even higher and there will be no complacency in the pursuit of the client’s goals our work will help achieve.”

Trawsfynydd’s site director Dave Wilson: “This is a significant award and one which will help Magnox deliver the site into early care and maintenance - in line with our Optimised Decommissioning Plan.  We look forward to working closely with the ACTUS joint venture.”

Costain announced in June that its joint venture with Amec and Jacobs had been awarded a framework contract by Magnox to retrieve and process both wet and solid intermediate level radioactive waste across all the Magnox sites in the UK.
