The new four-year framework, effective June 2020, covers a wide range of services to help LLWR manage the repository, in West Cumbria, on behalf of the U.K. government's Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

Chief Executive Officer of LLW Repository Ltd Paul Pointon said: "This procurement gives a secure platform to enable many of our critical support tasks and projects to be delivered for our current baseline of work. A collaborative contract of this type provides the flexibility we need to service demand and satisfy our many stakeholders.
