Balfour Beatty and Costain win £288M nuclear contract

Site operator Magnox has today awarded a £288M framework contract to contractors Balfour Beatty and Costain.

The framework contract will last over ten years and involves the delivery of construction, infrastructure and maintenance across all ten Magnox sites. Magnox operates the sites for the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

The framework is expected to be worth up to £30M per year, initially for five years with options to extend up to a further five years.

Costain already works for Magnox, which applied for a life extension at its one remaining operating plant in Wylfa last month. Balfour Beatty said the latest contract win will complement its work on nuclear sites.
