New team shares shutdown plan with supply chain

Dounreay’s new executive team outlined its approach to site closure at a briefing session for contractors and sub-contractors.


Following a series of presentations to staff at the site, the Babcock-lead consortium set out its plans at an event for the supply chain held in Thurso.

Topics included:

  • The contract between Babcock Dounreay Partnership and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority

  • Outline strategy for site closure

  • Procurement strategy

  • Expectations of the supply chain

Following its takeover of the site licence company on April 1, the consortium is now in a period of “consolidation”, during which it will integrate its programme in the work of the site licence company and seek the necessary regulatory consents for its implementation.
