NSG to Supply Magnox ILW Retrieval Equipment

NSG Environmental Ltd has been awarded a contract by Magnox Ltd to design, manufacture, test, install and commission equipment to retrieve wet intermediate level waste (ILW) from within the Pond Purge Sump (PPS) at the Hunterston A site in Scotland.

The contract, formally known as the Pond Purge Sump Retrieval and Encapsulation Project (PPSREP), has an estimated value and duration of £1m and 12 months respectively. NSG’s extensive waste retrieval experience was a key factor in being awarded the contract, having successfully completed a variety of waste retrieval campaigns at numerous sites around the UK.

Andy Deall, Director of Projects North at NSG, commented:

We are delighted to be awarded this contract and look forward to supporting Magnox with the safe and secure clean-up of their site. We have quickly developed a collaborative relationship with the Hunterston team and I am very confident this will lead to the successful delivery of the project.
