Sign up for Dounreay jobs


Contract opportunities ranging from demolition to waste handling at the Dounreay nuclear site in Caithness will be on the table for discussion at a supply chain event next month.

Six framework contracts were awarded to organisations earlier this year for a number of construction, demolition and engineering projects that will take decommissioning of the site into a new phase  (see story here). The programme is expected to see historic wastes retrieved from the site’s shaft, silo and low level waste pits for repackaging and consignment to waste facilities.

The framework contracts, worth up to £400m, are due to last up to four years with the possibility of extensions up to an additional three years.

Dounreay is hosting the event alongside all the framework companies. Jane MacKenzie, head of commercial services, said: “This is an opportunity to find out more about the type of projects we expect to deliver and discuss opportunities for other businesses to get involved and support them.”

The event will be held on September 5 in Wick and is open only to companies who register in advance. Spaces are limited to two people per organisation. Register here
