Ansaldo Nuclear has been awarded the first contract under the Programme and Project Partners (PPP) Fabrication and Manufacturing goods and services agreement (GSA1).
The company will develop the key ‘tie-in’ connections to support the flow of effluent treatment streams between the Sellafield site’s existing Site Ion Exchange Effluent Plant (SIXEP) facility and the new SIXEP Continuity Plant which is being delivered by PPP. Together the 2 facilities will filter out nuclear material before it is safely discharged to sea.
