Cumbria-based engineering and technology firm Delkia Ltd
has landed one of the first major packages of work from the multi-billion framework 3Ps — Programme and Project Partner — for Sellafield. The framework is made up of five major partners — Sellafield Ltd, Morgan Sindall, Doosan Babcock, KBR and Jacobs Clean Energy — to support on major capital projects at the Sellafield nuclear site.
Delkia has won a package for the ‘Sellafield Product and Residue Store Retreatment Plant’(SRP), which is a turnkey design, build and test package. The specialist ancillary systems will include a combination of electrical, instrumentation and fluid control systems to support key process systems within the SRP project interface.
Kurt Canfield, Delkia’s managing director, said: “This contract embellishes the continued success of the team’s operational excellence and customer care. It is fantastic to see Delkia as part of this significantly large nuclear EPC programme; our expertise, processes and value engineering capability really shone through during the qualification stages of this tender process.”
The project will be delivered via Delkia’s local facilities at Egremont, West Cumbria. The package was originally estimated at £2.3 million and will be led by Mark Sisson — Delkia’s nuclear relationship manager.
Moreover, the company secured contracts worth more than £3.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 alone — and it has secured further contracts through to 2024/2025 across UK nuclear and defence programmes.
