Amec and Balfour Beatty win £250M Sellafield decommissioning contract

HALEF, a partnership comprising Amec, Balfour Beatty and Areva, has been awarded an early contractor engagement contract to build a £250M Highly Active Effluent Facility at Sellafield..

The initial phase is a two-year project definition, design and cost programme. If this is favourable - and if there is still a business requirement - a four-year procurement construction and commissioning phase will begin in mid 2012.

The Highly Active Liquid Effluent Facility is a new facility to store radioactive waste, which arises from nuclear processing operations, comprising a series of high integrity highly active storage tanks in a seismically qualified reinforced concrete building.

HALEF joint venture board chairman Clive White said it is an important project on the Sellafield site. “It requires the skills of a highly competent, experienced nuclear team and we look forward to developing a world-class project,” he said.
