Morgan Sindall’s joint venture with Arup has signed the mega-contract for essential infrastructure asset services at Sellafield.

The duo were named preferred bidders for the £1.1bn framework back in October and today concluded negotiations over the deal.

The contract will run for five years, but could be extended for a further 10 years.

As part of the alliance with Sellafield Ltd both partners have agreed to set up a permanent base in West Cumbria and work with local partners to deliver an apprentice training.

George Beveridge, Nuclear Management Partners’ Deputy Managing Director for Sellafield Ltd, said: “Collaborative alliances like this represent a new way of operating for us but they represent industry best practice and we now look forward to realising the benefits that this new approach will bring to the site.

“I’m particularly pleased to see that much good work has already taken place in finding a West Cumbrian location for the workforce, engaging local partners in addressing training needs and understanding the needs of our local community.

“We’ve got off to a good start. It’s important that we now maintain that momentum.”

 

Programme management and project delivery service

  • Steam generation and on-site distribution;
  • Electricity generation and on-site distribution;
  • Water supply to site and on-site distribution;
  • Compressed air generation and distribution;
  • Civil infrastructure supporting pipes and cables;
  • Drainage network and sewerage treatment plant;
  • Roads, bridges and car parks;
  • General building facilities such as canteens and laundry.

The alliance is the second in a series of long-term contracts that will be let by Sellafield Ltd under a new acquisition strategy introduced by parent body Nuclear Management Partners.

Through the strategy, Sellafield Ltd will establish true alliance-style contracts with its suppliers as it undertakes the important task of cleaning up and decommissioning Europe’s most complex nuclear site.

Sean Balmer, commercial director of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and chairman of Britain’s Energy Coast business cluster, said: “The signing of this contract represents a significant step towards the safe and secure clean-up of the Sellafield site – the NDA’s number one priority.

“I am particularly pleased by the commitment shown to West Cumbria by Morgan Sindall and Arup, which is reflected in their decision to establish a permanent base in the area.

“It is important that long-term, strategic contracts like this are used to provide a solid framework around which we can build a stable and secure local supply chain which will help us deliver the aspirations set out in the Britain’s Energy Coast economic blueprint.”
