Jacobs was selected as a full lifecycle delivery partner to support infrastructure renewal projects at various facilities run by the U.K.’s government-owned, but operationally independent, National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL). NNL estimates the contract value at USD 12M (GBP 10M) and the initial contract term is one year with options for three additional one-year extensions. Scope includes design, build, and refurbishment work at the Windscale and Central Laboratories at Sellafield in Cumbria, specialist analytical services and process chemistry facility in Preston, and a test-rig center in Workington. Jacobs is responsible for: requirements definition; project specification; concept, preliminary and detailed design; procurement, and installation.

NNL’s facilities support new reactor build and existing reactor operations as well as decommissioning, clean-up and fuel processing plants, and handling and inspection services for nuclear material.
