6 September 2012


Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, has been selected as one of two companies on a £288 million framework for the delivery of construction, infrastructure and maintenance projects across all 10 sites operated by Magnox on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

The framework is expected to be worth up to £30 million per annum, initially for five years with options to extend up to a further five years.

This work will complement a broad portfolio of multi-disciplined activities, including executing major projects, already being undertaken by Balfour Beatty at UK Licensed Nuclear Sites. Similarly, it underpins Balfour Beatty's drive to increase its involvement in power related markets.

Balfour Beatty Chief Executive, Ian Tyler, said:

“We are delighted to have been selected by Magnox as part of this important framework. Our role in the framework highlights Balfour Beatty’s strengths in the design, delivery and maintenance of infrastructure assets in the power sector. We look forward to working with Magnox.”

The project work includes the design, construction and maintenance of permanent buildings and structures, infrastructure maintenance and extension works incorporating construction, civil engineering and ground works projects.
