Interserve has been awarded a one-year contract extension with Magnox – the company responsible for 12 nuclear sites and one hydroelectric plant in the UK.
The new deal folllows a two- year extension to the original term, which has seen the international support services and construction group working with Magnox since 2013, providing a comprehensive range of services across the 12 sites.
Key elements of the account include electrical, building and fabric maintenance, specialist mechanical services, grounds, vehicle and equipment maintenance, cleaning and catering. A strong focus of the extended agreement will be on identifying and delivering efficiencies, following significant savings made to date.
Guy Bruce, Managing Director – infrastructure and industrial, at Interserve said: “We have a strong nuclear heritage, having worked in the sector for more than 65 years. Given our strong partnership with Magnox, we are extremely well placed to continue to drive the improvements in service performance the company needs while also cutting expenditure.”
Over the last 25years, Interserve has also completed a number of building and infrastructure projects for Magnox at sites including Hinkley Point A, Berkeley and Bradwell.
Under contract to the site owner – the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority – Magnox is responsible for the decommissioning of Berkeley, Bradwell, Chapelcross, Dungeness A, Harwell, Hinkley Point A, Hunterston A, Oldbury, Oldbury Techincal Centre, Sizewell A, Trawsfynydd and Winfrith, defuelling at Wylfa and electricity generation at Maentwrog,
