Hinkley Point A (Photo: Magnox Ltd)UK-based Turner & Townsend (T&T) and Arcadis have been re-appointed to provide project controls and commercial services to support the decommissioning and management of UK nuclear sites by Magnox Ltd.

Magnox, a subsidiary of the UK's Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), currently oversees the safe management and decommissioning of 12 Magnox nuclear sites. Magnox will also decommission EDF’s existing advanced-gas cooled reactor fleet as they transfer on a rolling basis after defuelling and join with Dounreay in the near future.

T&T and Arcadis have been providing services to Magnox in partnership since 2012 providing services including project, cost, contract and risk management, as well as quantity surveying – working to improve overall programme efficiency and predictability across Magnox’s UK-wide programme.

A key part of the work has been driving delivery and change within Magnox as it evolves in its current decommissioning and site management role. 

“Our re-appointment to support this major decommissioning programme reflects our strong credibility and experience in the nuclear sector. It builds on the excellent partnership we have with Arcadis and the relationship we have developed with Magnox over the past nine years," said Richard Simpkins, director at Turner & Townsend.
