Global Commercial Group

EnergySolutions has the capabilities to fully support the U.K.’s nuclear energy future. The need to clean up Europe’s nuclear legacy, together with the renewed interest in a new build program, is producing opportunities in the nuclear sector.

EnergySolutions has designed, constructed, and operated more than 150 pilot plants and test rigs in the U.S. and the U.K. over the last 20 years. These plants have supported the design, commissioning, and operation of facilities that range from small-scale to full-scale. EnergySolutions believes there are a number of business development opportunities in the U.K. and continental Europe which are well matched to our skills and capabilities. We now have the opportunity to participate in the continued safe operation and decommissioning of ten of the U.K.’s Magnox reactor sites on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, which has strategic responsibility for the U.K.’s nuclear legacy. The site and locations are divided into two sections, shown below with accompanying map.

Comprehensive Client Site Services for Nuclear Material Licensees

EnergySolutions is the leader in providing services and solutions to the commercial sector for the safe management, handling, and disposition of radioactive material from client sites. Our services address the full life cycle of radioactive material generation from initial guidance, identification and characterization, to removal and packaging, to shipment offsite for further processing, volume reduction, and disposition.

Our clients encompass hundreds of licensees, including nuclear utilities, radiopharmaceutical facilities, universities, laboratories, radioactive source manufacturers, material processors, and other facilities that use radioactive materials. With over 20 years of experience, providing a full range of services to these licensees, we can apply innovations and efficiencies to develop the right cost-effective solution to any emergent nuclear operations or radiological challenges facing our clients.
