The Decommissioning Services Framework (DDF) Alliance has been awarded a contract for the design of a new waste repackaging facility at the UK Dounreay nuclear site.
DDF is led by Cavendish Nuclear and supported by KDC Contractors (Veolia) and BAM Nuttall (BAM). The programme of work is expected to run until early 2022 and forms part of Dounreay Site Restoration Limited’s (DSRL’s) Decommissioning Services Framework.
The contract is for the concept and scheme design of a new waste repackaging processing facility, which will support delivery of Dounreay site’s waste strategy and decommissioning programme.
The Contact Handled Intermediate Level Waste Process Facility will be used to treat and package waste on the site and will leverage knowledge from previous projects of a similar nature delivered by Cavendish Nuclear and the other DDF Alliance partners.
