Aker Kvaerner has been awarded a GBP 16 million contract by Magnox Electric Limited, to design, build and install a plant for the retrieval and encapsulation of wet intermediate level wastes (ILW) at Hunterston A Site in West Kilbride, Scotland. The project is part of the site's nuclear decommissioning programme and will commence immediately with a 38-month project duration. Plant start up is expected in July 2010.
 
The scope of the contract includes engineering design from Aker Kvaerner's Stockton and Warrington offices, as well as the manufacture, construction, site commissioning, and safety case work for a facility that will carry out the safe retrieval and cementatious encapsulation of the wet ILW wastes. 
 
Dave Ley, President of Aker Kvaerner Engineering Services, comments, "Aker Kvaerner has applied extensive design, engineering and practical experience in the handling of Magnox sludges and effluents, and has been able to offer a unique and robust retrieval and encapsulation solution for the Hunterston A wet wastes."
 
Aker Kvaerner and joint venture partnerships have now secured over GBP 50 million of nuclear services work since the start of the year. This is the third multi-million pound nuclear project to be secured in the last six months. It follows the recent retrievals (announced 22 May 2007) and export (announced 22 February 2007) contract awards at Sellafield.
