Framework contracts for Sellafield

Introduced for the Sellafield decommissioning programme the first winners have been announced in a new style of framework contracts.

Programme & Project Partners (PPP) has appointed its first goods/services agreement (GSA) framework suppliers. NIS, Hyde Group, Ansaldo Nuclear, James Fisher Nuclear, Carr’s Group, West Cumberland Engineering and NWEC Alliance will deliver the fabricated and manufactured equipment packages under the agreement, which has an initial period of three years and is worth up to £20m.

The PPP partnership, which supports the site’s 100 year decommissioning programme,is made up of KBR (integration partner), Jacobs (design and engineering partner), Morgan Sindall Infrastructure (civils construction management partner) and Doosan Babcock (process construction management partner), with Sellarfield Ltd as the fifth partner. Sellarfield Ltd is the organisation responsible for the safe operation and clean up of the Sellafieldsite in Cumbria, as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

The fabrication and manufactured equipment package is the first GSA to be awarded PPP as part of a major framework spanning the next 18 years. Items and equipment to be provided include process cabinets, bogies and rail systems.

It has been procured under a new multi project procurement MPP model, designed to encourage long term collaboration throughout the supply chain, enhance project delivery and pave the way for greater economic and social impact in the West Cumbria region.

The MPP model will see the appointment of key delivery partners and GSA framework suppliers to deliver work packages covering everything from electrical and instrumentation and fabrication and manufacturing to groundworks and general civils.

GSA01 Framework manager Tom Wiseman said: “PPP has undertaken a rigorous selection process over the last 12 months in order to reach this position. I am delighted to work alongside all of the successful suppliers for the next three years and am confident that they will all deliver the benefits for the projects that this framework has been established to do”.
