Wood has secured a contract to provide the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) with specialist technical assistance.
Effective immediately, appointment to the new multi-supplier framework will see Wood’s independent nuclear assurance (INA) team providing support for the NDA’s work on site decommissioning and remediation, integrated waste management, spent fuels and nuclear materials.
The contract is for two years with potential for a two-year extension and covers independent peer-review of technical documents, plans, programmes of work and projects; assistance with technology management; and various technical and strategic assessments.
Bob MacDonald, CEO of specialist technical solutions at Wood, said: “We look forward to working with the NDA through this new framework, which covers services that we have been providing to other customers, including the UK Ministry of Defence, for more than 50 years.
“We employ more than 100 scientists and engineers on similar, vital INA work to underpin nuclear safety for the Royal Navy’s submarine service, including recognised experts working on technology developments in nuclear fuel and clad, nuclear materials and chemistry, reactor physics, shielding and criticality, non-destructive examination techniques and advanced structural integrity assessment methods.”
