Sellafield is planning to place its £4.5bn construction programme in the hands of four long-term construction partners.

The new procurement model will change how major projects are delivered at the nuclear site over the next 20 years.

Working as an intelligent client Sellafield Ltd aims to now establish integrated team partnerships for four key tasks.

One partner will deliver project and programme integration, another design and engineering, the other two civils construction, and process construction.

Sellafield will explain details of the new Programme and Project Partners (PPP) model and launch the tender race at a bidders day at the end of this month.

This collaborative model will be used to deliver the huge works programme more safely, efficiently and cost effectively.

Massive 20 year construction programme to be delivered by four key partners

Sellafield Ltd will hold a PPP Industry Day on 28 April at the Energus Centre, Workington, Cumbria, CA14 4JW between 10 – 13:30. Interested firms can reserve a place for up to two people by registering on the tender portal (reference 8891).
Contact Mark Donegan by email or tel 01925832447.

Sellafield projects director Steve Livingstone, said: “This is a hugely important step for Sellafield Ltd – it is a game change for the way we deal with our supply chain.

“Instead of procuring supply chains for each major project, we’ll establish a new project delivery environment based upon long term relationships with selected partners, developing closer working practices on the way.

“The new model will ensure our projects, while maintaining our excellent safety performance, will be delivered faster, meaning Sellafield is made safer more quickly.”

Sellafield’s decommissioning programme requires a complex portfolio of major projects stretching over many decades.

Presently around £500m is being spent each year on construction and maintenance projects.

In the first instance Sellafield will require partners to deliver three key projects:  The £180m SPRS Retreatment Plant, £225m SIXEP Contingency Plant and Replacement Analytical Project.
