Amec wins new £7M Dounreay contract

NCE stock nuclear

Amec Foster Wheeler has won a £7M design and build contract to provide a new effluent treatment plant for the Dounreay nuclear site in Scotland.

Dounreay Site Restoration Limited (DSRL), responsible for decommissioning the former centre of fast reactor research and development, has awarded the contract.

“This is an important project and adds to the work we are already engaged in with DSRL at Dounreay,” said Amec Foster Wheeler’s clean energy Europe vice president for decommissioning Andy White.

“The combination of our nuclear expertise and our experience as a contractor is instrumental in this work to support the clean-up of the site for future generations.”

The work includes the concept and detailed design, manufacture of the modular process plant, and installation and commissioning.

The firm said it will be looking to the local supply chain to deliver some of the major parts of the contract, as well as supporting graduates and local education programmes.
