Utah-based Energy Solutions has completed the acquisition of Safeguard International Solutions, a UK company providing turn-key services for the disposal of radioactive materials from non-nuclear power generating facilities.
Safeguard is EnergySolutions’ first UK acquisition, part of a strategy to expand its business in the growing UK market.
Philip Strawbridge, EnergySolutions group president said: “We aim to provide services to customers across the nuclear fuel cycle. We believe that Safeguard’s expertise in radioactive waste collection will be valuable to both nuclear and non-nuclear customers. Safeguard adds to the growing base of operations that EnergySolutions already has in the UK.”
Safeguard, based at Harwell, Oxfordshire, undertakes removals of radioactive materials from universities, hospitals, industry and government, ensuring that surplus radioactive sources are processed and stored safely and securely.
