We are delighted to have been awarded the NRS SD3 (Scheme Design 3) Bioshield break-in contract, for reactor dismantling at Trawsfynydd - in support of the wider decommissioning strategy at the site.

NUVIA’s expertise in multi-discipline design and acting as a system integrator will be invaluable in delivering SD3, alongside our track record delivering solutions in nuclear decommissioning and demolition projects. As well as extensive experience in designing demolition solutions, we have also managed and undertaken the implementation of our solutions on site using our in-house decommissioning site services department.

Our capability will be further enhanced through collaboration with a wider team, consisting of BD Nuclear, MAMMOET and experts from United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority’s RAICo team*. As specialists in their respective fields, each will bring a unique and valuable contribution to the SD3 project, helping to support NUVIA in its successful delivery.

The SD3 contract adds to the varied scope of works NUVIA has been delivering for long-standing client NRS, which recently included being awarded a place on the DAR framework (in June 2023). The SD3 project further reinforces the strong relationship we have with NRS, and as always we will take great pride in ensuring that the work is delivered safely and efficiently.

Kian Woodward, Managing Director for the Projects, Engineering & Decommissioning Business at NUVIA said “We are very pleased to have once again been selected by NRS to help support them in their important national reactor decommissioning programme. We have put together a strong team to deliver this work for NRS. We are excited to be supporting the Trawsfynydd site by delivering the Scheme Design for Bioshield break-in, and look forward to starting work this year”.
