"Nuvia’s appointment to this framework is continued recognition of our capability and expertise in the effective implementation of decommissioning projects.”
(PRWEB UK) 16 November 2011
Magnox, who operate the sites on behalf of their owner – the NDA (Nuclear Decommissioning Authority), has established a pioneering framework model including a number of specialist contractors of which Nuvia Limited is part.
The work, at the sites of the UK’s first generation of nuclear power stations, will start in the coming months and beginning with the de-planting of the boiler houses at Bradwell Site in Essex and the demolition of admin and ancillary buildings at Dungeness A Site in Kent.
The Framework Contract – which was developed by working closely with the supply chain - will allow more efficient commercial arrangements between Magnox and its contractors, reducing tendering costs and provide a supply chain ‘toolbox’ to meet the needs of the various projects over the coming years.
Alan Bladon, Programme Director, said: “This gives us a great opportunity to outperform our decommissioning plans by building long term supply chain relationships, learning from experience, and increasing our ability to deliver. “
He added: “We have brought together a number of related projects in line with our approach to optimised decommissioning which, overall, is expected to save the taxpayer more than £1.3 billion as sites are delivered into care and maintenance.”
Commenting on the appointment, Nuvia Limited Chief Executive Keith Collett said, "We are delighted to be supporting Magnox in the delivery of its programme which has the potential to accelerate their decommissioning plans. Nuvia’s appointment to this framework is continued recognition of our capability and expertise in the effective implementation of decommissioning projects.”
