Jacobs to Lead Design Team for One of World’s Deepest Nuclear Clean-ups
DSRL, the site shutdown company, has hired Jacobs to lead design integration to enable construction to begin, help manage design and construction work packages, and provide design support during construction and commissioning.
“By using our design and program management capabilities in conjunction with DSRL, we will bring together several complex and challenging projects to ensure safe and efficient delivery,” said Jacobs Critical Mission Solutions International, senior vice president Clive White. “This work aims to make tangible progress in cleaning up Dounreay.”
The Dounreay Well extends 214.5 feet underground and is 15 feet wide in places, while the silo is a large underground vault with a concrete roof. Both were used to dispose of medium-weight waste in the 1960s and 1970s. Now the solid waste and liquid wastewater it contains must be retrieved and repackaged to move to a safe, modern warehouse.
DSRL estimates the order value $ 10.4 million (£ 8m) over 6.5 years with potential for additional revenue as additional work packages are identified. Berkshire Engineering, based near Dounreay, will assist with testing and testing.
“The shaft and silo contain old waste that must be emptied and repackaged for long-term storage before the site can be closed. These contracts are one step closer to rehabilitating these historic waste dumps,” said DSRL’s Program Delivery Director. David Hubbard.
