Warrington’s nuclear hub set for new arrivals
Warrington’s nuclear hub at Birchwood is being boosted by the arrival of two major businesses.
Nuclear energy specialist AREVA RMC has already set up an office at Birchwood and it is soon to be joined by a new three-way joint venture established between Mace, Areva and Atkins.
The new joint venture has been selected as preferred bidder for a £1bn contract with Sellafield to build a encapsulation plant, and will take the Sellafield project through detailed design, construction, manufacture, procurement, installation, and inactive commissioning.
The final contract award is subject to approval from the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority but it is understood that the joint venture is already seeking up to 50,000sq ft of office space at Birchwood in anticipation.
