WSP and Parsons Brinckerhoff to help develop nuclear waste project

The company will support a multi-billion pound project to build a geological disposal facility.

WSP and Parsons Brinckerhoff has won a four-year contract to provide specialist nuclear waste services across a number of the UK’s nuclear sites. Work will include supporting a multi-billion pound engineering project to safely and securely build and operate a geological disposal facility (GDF).

The contract is with Radioactive Waste Management Limited (RWM) and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA).

The work will involve supporting radioactive waste management and decommissioning activities. WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff will provide engineering design, environmental assessments and site characterisation services which will help RWM develop a GDF, a deep underground disposal facility at a site that has yet to be selected.

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff assistant director of its nuclear decommissioning team Steven Majhu said: “We are seeking to support RWM in developing solutions for the disposal of the UK’s radioactive waste”

The work will be done with the Orchid Group and its members. The group was formed to pool nuclear expertise from across the industry.
