A multi-million-pound demolition contract has been awarded for the Dounreay Materials Test Reactor (DMTR). The DMTR was the first operational nuclear reactor in Scotland and came into service in 1958. It was built to test the effects of radiation on different materials and operated for 11 years. The three-year contract has now been awarded to Cavendish Nuclear, which has appointed JGC Engineering & Technical Services, Veolia (through its subsidiary KDC) and Frazer-Nash Consultancy (a subsidiary of Babcock International Group) as its key supply chain partners.
