LINC with Dounreay

Dounreay was once the UK’s centre of fast reactor research and development and is now Scotland’s largest nuclear clean up and demolition project. Recognised as one of the most complex closure programmes in Europe, the site is expected to reach an interim end state between 2030 and 2033. That can only be achieved with a strong partnership between the Dounreay workforce and the supply chain.

LINC with Dounreay is a scheme set up to encourage small and medium enterprises (SMEs) at a local and national level to collaborate with each other to deliver innovative solutions that support the Dounreay decommissioning programme.

A series of work packages will be identified focusing on the various challenges faced across the site, with around 2 opportunities per quarter advertised on this page.

Companies are invited to register and receive information directly as it becomes available. Projects now launched as part of the scheme can be seen in the opportunities section below.

How to register

Register just once and submit proposals for as many opportunities as you want. Registering will give you first look at the opportunities and other registered companies you could collaborate with when taking part.

All SMEs must be pre-registered with LINC before submitting a proposal. Details of registered SMEs will be published periodically to support and encourage further collaboration.

Non-SMEs are free to register with LINC but their participation will be limited to a supporting role only.

There is no closing date for registration. Proposals submitted by companies who have not registered beforehand will not be considered.
