Sellafield names key steelwork delivery partners
Severfield Nuclear and Infrastructure and William Hare have been appointed key delivery partners with the Sellafield Programme and Project Partners.
The 17-year framework will see the Bolton and Bury based firms provide steelwork to major projects on the Cumbrian nuclear site.
Sellafield is one of the largest infrastructure projects in the north, supporting 60,000 jobs. The birthplace of the UK nuclear industry, the site is now focused on nuclear decommissioning and waste management.
The steelwork package is the 5th key delivery partner supplier framework to be awarded by Sellafield and includes structural steelwork, steel frames, general steelwork, secondary steelwork, structural metalwork, general metalwork, metal decking, and metal walkways and edge protection.
Stuart Mitchell, Director of Severfield said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded a place on the Programme and Project Partners framework to deliver structural steelwork major projects over the next 17 years.
“Severfield has been present on the Sellafield site for over 13 years having worked on multiple major projects.
“This secures Severfield’s future on the Sellafield site and gives us the opportunity to bring the people, governance and innovation that has made us the largest structural steelwork contractor in the UK to the partnership.”
Craig Arnold, Director at William Hare, added: “We welcome this opportunity to consolidate 40 years’ experience at the Sellafield site with the integration of our bespoke, optimised structural delivery process into the Programme and Project Partners strategy.
“This will bring both value and certainty of outcome into Sellafield projects as well as opportunity and support for the local community.”
