COSTAIN has claimed a major £90 million nuclear decommissioning deal at Sellafield in Cumbria, just three years after entering the sector.
The contractor will design and build a fourth evaporator at the power plant for the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
The facility, which evaporates excess liquid from nuclear sludge in the clean-up process, will be housed in an extension to Sellafield's current evaporation and storage plant.
Business development director Stephen Wells said: 'This is the culmination of three years of hard work for our nuclear business. We're looking at a lot of other opportunities in the sector.'
The company will begin design work immediately, with construction work on the three-year scheme beginning late next year.
