Warrington-headquartered Cavendish Nuclear has won a contract to design and build a plant for treating liquid wastes from the decommissioning of the Hinkley Point A site. The company will supply Magnox with a facility capable of processing a variety of waste streams and converting them to a form that is safe for storage or disposal. It will be built and commissioned off-site at Cavendish Nuclear’s facility at Whetstone and is due to be installed at Hinkley Point A in early 2020. The contract breaks new ground for Cavendish Nuclear, marking the first time the business has supplied equipment for the clean-up of Hinkley Point A.

The other will be an effluent that can be treated further by existing on-site facilities, before being discharged to the sea.
