Westinghouse Electric Company has become the sixth partner in Cumbria Nuclear Solutions Limited.
The partnership of companies has submitted a bid for the second Sellafield Decommissioning Framework Agreement estimated to be worth around GBP30m per year over four years.
The other companies are James Fisher Nuclear Ltd, REACT Engineering Ltd, Shepley Engineers Ltd, Stobbarts Ltd and WYG Ltd.
Mike Tynan, CEO of Westinghouse in the UK said: “Westinghouse is actively involved in the decommissioning and clean-up market around the world but to date has had relatively limited involvement in the UK in this field. We have ambitious plans to change that and our alliance with our partners in Cumbria Nuclear Solutions is an important step in demonstrating our plans to bring this experience and expertise to the UK marketplace.
As well as making a bid submission for the second Sellafield Decommissioning Framework Agreement, the partnership is currently examining other opportunities for collaboration.
