AXIOM JV awarded 15-year design support contract at Sellafield

AXIOM, a joint venture of AMEC, Assystem, Jacobs Engineering Group Inc, and Mott MacDonald, has been awarded one of two contracts that establishes a 15-year Design Services
Alliance (DSA) with Sellafield Limited.

The DSA framework, potentially worth up to £1.5 billion over the 15 years, will provide Sellafield with access to the full range of multi-disciplined engineering services – civil and structural, mechanical, control and instrumentation, and process – for the development and refurbishment of new and existing facilities and for decommissioning at the Sellafield site in West Cumbria.

AXIOM is one of two organisations to have been appointed under the DSA.

AXIOM’s contract will involve providing front-end engineering design support for all new facilities and for the refurbishment and upgrading of existing facilities and systems to the production operations and infrastructure directorates at Sellafield. This work will be delivered in collaboration with Sellafield’s own staff and local suppliers, with all parties working as part of an integrated team.

Tom Jones, Chairman of the AXIOM joint venture, emphasised that full and total cooperation with the local supply chain is the top priority:

“The companies that make up AXIOM have a long established history of working with the supply chain throughout West Cumbria and not only will this continue, but we plan to increase our involvement to ensure that we fully utilise the vast range of skills and expertise available in the area.”

Todd Wright, the NMP-sponsored Managing Director for Sellafield Ltd, said: “Effective supply chain engagement through long term collaborative alliances is key to Sellafield Ltd delivering and exceeding commitments made in our performance plan. These new contracts will bring stability and certainty to the supply chain and are excellent news for West Cumbria.”
