CAVENDISH Nuclear and construction group Balfour Beatty will share the new project to construct the long planned Silos Maintenance facility at Sellafield.
The SMF has been planned for the past three years, and the two companies will work on construction, installation, setting to work and inactive safety commissioning.
Sellafield Ltd project manager Kevin Bell said: “It is now three years since the first phase of the contract strategy commenced with the joint venture, and we are delighted to be moving into phase three.
“The project has overcome a number of challenges along the way, but through a collaborative approach we have maintained the aggressive schedule that was set.”
The completed SMF will retrieve historic waste from the Magnox Swarf Storage Silos and the Pile Fuel Cladding Silo.
Balfour Beatty will take 45 per cent of the project work, while Cavendish Nuclear take the rest.
