Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 9/26/2016, Location: Europe

Amec Foster Wheeler has won a contract to provide a new effluent treatment plant for the Dounreay nuclear site in the UK. The contract, valued at £7m, was awarded by Dounreay Site Restoration Limited (DSRL), which is responsible for decommissioning the former centre of fast reactor research and development in Caithness, Scotland.

This is an important project and adds to the work we are already engaged in with DSRL at Dounreay.

The combination of our nuclear expertise and our experience as a contractor is instrumental in this work to support the clean-up of the site for future generations.

Andy White, Vice President for Decommissioning at Amec Foster Wheeler’s Clean Energy Europe business.

As a major employer in Caithness, we take our responsibility to support the future of our community seriously. We are particularly pleased to announce this partnership as it is the first contract to be awarded since Dounreay introduced a policy requiring our biggest suppliers to think about how they can help us deliver our socio-economic commitments.

Stephen Adamson, Dounreay Head of Commercial
Amec Foster Wheeler shares Dounreay’s commitment to the local community and will be engaging the local supply chain to deliver major aspects of this contract as well as offering secondment opportunities for Dounreay graduates and subject matter experts to support local education programmes.

For DSRL, the new plant is a key link in the chain to enable the retrieval, processing and packaging of waste from the Dounreay Shaft and Wet Silo. The objective of the overall programme is to render the waste suitable for long-term storage and disposal in accordance with the site’s integrated waste strategy.

The scope of work includes concept and detailed design; production of the safety case and supporting environmental documentation; manufacture of the modular process plant, offsite testing, delivery to the Dounreay site and onsite installation and commissioning.

All liquid effluent from the new plant will be managed, processed and discharged by pipeline to the existing Low Level Liquid Effluent Treatment Plant.
