A major nuclear contract has been won by a firm with a base in West Cumbria. Wood has won the contract from Magnox Ltd to retrieve, process and dispose of radioactive waste from a nuclear power station that is being decommissioned in the south of England. The construction, design and management project will involve the removal of 47m³ of radioactive wet waste stored in tanks at Dungeness A in Kent, which ceased generating in 2006. After being removed using various retrieval and conditioning systems designed by Wood, the waste will be processed for disposal as low-level waste.
