Demolition firms front and centre on latest nuclear framework.
Winners of a decommissioning services framework worth up to £400 million at Dounreay have been revealed, according to industry news portal Construction Enquirer.
Work at the Scottish nuclear site will include construction of a size reduction facility, shaft and silo decommissioning and demolition of historic active laboratories.
Six framework contracts have been awarded, bringing together the capabilities of at least 28 companies and their supply chains, initially for up to four years with the possibility of extensions of up to an additional three years.
Winners will now compete in ‘mini competitions’ for distinct packages of work that move the site towards its ultimate closure.
