City A.M. Reporter
Building group Morgan Sindall and engineering consultancy Arup have secured a £1.1bn services contract at the Sellafield nuclear site, Cumbria.

The joint venture will improve and develop key infrastructure assets at Sellafield including the maintenance of steam and electricity generation, water supply, chemical storage and distribution, drainage networks and all transport infrastructure at the nuclear reprocessing site.

Morgan Sindall Group chief executive Paul Smith said today: “The renewal of Sellafield's infrastructure is an important commitment to Cumbria, and underlines the group's continuing focus on UK regeneration."

The contract will be signed later in the year, for an initial five year period, with an option to extend the contract for a further 10 years.

Sellafield is responsible for decommissioning, reprocessing, nuclear waste management and fuel manufacturing activities on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
