Cyclife are proud to be within the Eden Nuclear and Environment Ltd team who have been awarded a place on the UK Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s Direct Research Portfolio (2020-2024) for “Integrated Waste Management, and Site Decommissioning and Remediation.”
The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) awarded R&D contracts to look for innovative solutions to the technical challenges of delivering the NDA’s decommissioning mission. The Direct Research Portfolio (DRP) contracts will be shared by a series of consortia involving established nuclear companies, global cross-sector corporations, UK universities, national laboratories, plus small and medium-sized enterprises. The new contracts will run for four years, replacing the previous DRPs awarded in 2016, and follow a six-month procurement process. 12 consortia were successful involving over 60 organisations in total. The Eden Nuclear and Environment Ltd team is one of them and is supported by Cyclife, Gardiner & Theobald, Golder Associates (UK) Ltd, Hydrock Consultants Ltd, Integrated Decision Management (IDM), University of Bristol and WSP UK Ltd.
“We are delighted to work again with the NDA. Cyclife are always striving to engage with our customers at the earliest possible stage and the NDA framework will give us the opportunity to offer strategic development and innovative technologies including novel treatment capabilities through our R&D process to full-scale commercial development. ” Andrew Laker, Head of Consultancy, Cyclife UK.
