James Fisher Nuclear Ltd has been awarded a four year contract by Magnox to deliver a facility for the remote segmentation and packaging of the reactor core of the redundant Steam Generating Heavy Water Reactor located at Winfrith in Dorset.

This will be one of the largest value turnkey decommissioning projects to have been awarded in the UK in recent years, JFN said today. The SGHWR reactor will be only the second reactor core within the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority estate to be subject to decommissioning and will be the first of the ‘power’ reactors, it added. The first was Windscale Advanced Gas Cooled Reactor, undertaken by BNFL Project Services in partnership with JFN.
