GRAHAM To Develop ILW Drum Store Extension


Co Down based GRAHAM has been appointed by Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd (DSRL) to develop a new shielded Intermediate Level Waste (ILW) Drum Store Extension and an Unshielded Waste Store Extension for shielded waste containers next to the existing Dounreay Cementation Plant (DCP) complex.

Valued in excess of £22million, the complex works programme on behalf of DSRL – the site license company contracted by Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) for the safe and secure clean up of the Dounreay nuclear site – begins later this month. Dounreay is Scotland's largest nuclear decommissioning project and is widely recognised as one of Europe's most challenging nuclear closure programmes.

The site belongs to NDA, a non-departmental public body of the UK Government.

The contract award follows a competitive tendering process involving several bidders, with the standstill period elapsing on Monday 24 September.

The pre-construction phase is expected to take 25 weeks while construction is scheduled for a duration of 125 weeks.
