Babcock wins Sellafield radiometric support contracts

UK-based engineering company Babcock has won four multi-million pound contracts to supply radiometric services support at Sellafield, following success in all four bids submitted by the company.

The total value of the contracts over their lifetime is estimated at £86m.

Under the four contracts, Babcock will be providing nuclear material assay (NMA) maintenance delivery and support; maintenance delivery and workshop repairs for installed and portable radiological protection instrumentation (IRPI and PRPI); calibration and repair of maintenance and test equipment (MTE); and specialist technical and consultancy support to Sellafield for ad-hoc specialist measurements.

In delivering these services, Babcock will be supplying critical skills and expertise required, both to ensure safety compliance to maintain operations across the site, and also to provide a maintenance and obsolescence management programme for a number of critical assets.
