Wood has been awarded a new framework agreement by Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd (DSRL) to provide industrial services for its nuclear decommissioning site in Thurso, Scotland.

Effective immediately, the two-year contract includes two, one-year extension options and covers the delivery of electrical installation, control and instrumentation, testing, commissioning and maintenance support.

We will leverage our strong industrial services capability to support DSRL at one of the most complex nuclear closure sites in Europe.

Our knowledge of providing industrial services to the energy, pharmaceutical, and biotech industries combined with our experience in working with stringent safety systems will ensure we deliver assurance in the installation and validation of electrical and control equipment on-site.

Robin Watson, chief executive, Wood

This new framework agreement builds on Wood’s existing presence at Dounreay. Since 2015, Wood has worked on the design and construction of a new effluent treatment plant, provided the design, safety case and environmental assessment of a new higher activity waste store and a wide range of support under a professional services framework agreement.

DSRL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Cavendish Dounreay Partnership Ltd, a consortium of Cavendish Nuclear, CH2M and AECOM. It is funded by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) to deliver the site closure programme.
