Amec Foster Wheeler awarded detailed design contract for Dounreay nuclear waste store

Amec Foster Wheeler announces today the award of a contract for the design, safety case and environmental assessment of a new higher activity waste store at the Dounreay nuclear site in Scotland.

The 12 month contract, awarded by Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd (DSRL), the value of which has not been announced, will see Amec Foster Wheeler bring its nuclear decommissioning design skills to undertake the scheme and detailed design, safety case and environmental assessments of the store, which will hold encapsulated waste arising from the decommissioning activities on the Dounreay site.

 

The decommissioning of the Dounreay site is an extremely demanding and complex process and one that is well suited to the skills we have in Amec Foster Wheeler. The design of this state-of-the-art facility is a key element in the decommissioning strategy of the site and one that we are looking forward to delivering for this important client.
Leigh Wakefield, Business Unit Director for Amec Foster Wheeler’s Clean Energy business
