Support services company VT Group has won a three-year contract to support the Sellafield Site statutory monitoring requirements through its Environmental Laboratory, based at the Westlakes Science and Technology Park, in Cumbria.
The new contract, an extension of current work, will span three years, with an option for a further year. The contract is valued at up to GBP10 million ($15m) over three years.
The scope of the work includes provision of analytical services to Sellafield Ltd for approved dosimetry; analysis of terrestrial and marine samples; support of groundwater monitoring programmes; analysis of plant aerial and liquid effluent samples.
John Chubb, Managing Director of VT Group’s Environmental business, commented: “This is a major success for our Environmental Laboratory and reflects the skills, knowledge and experience of the laboratory team in delivering an excellent performance and customer satisfaction.
”Since acquiring the business we have worked to bring a culture of long-term partnering and continuous improvement to the business.“
The laboratory was acquired by VT Group in January 2008 and more than 50 people are employed at the facility, which carries out some 50,000 measurements a year.
