The UK government has announced it is to invest £679m and take a 50% share in the proposed Sizewell C nuclear power plant project.

Bolton-headquartered Seddon Construction has been appointed to deliver a building fit-out requirement at the Sellafield nuclear facility in Cumbria, UK.

The family-owned business will implement the £175m contract, through a framework agreement, until March 2039.

The contract is the fourth key delivery partner supplier framework to be awarded as part of a major programme of procurements to support the long-term delivery of major decommissioning infrastructure on the Sellafield site.

The long-standing relationship aims to “bring a wealth of employment opportunities” as Seddon seeks to bolster its supply chain in Cumbria, supporting the local economy and providing job security.

John Shannon, divisional director of Seddon, said: “This an excellent appointment for Seddon as a supply chain partner for the Sellafield site.

“We pride ourselves on our expertise and have complete faith in our experience to deliver best-of-kind service over the next 17 years.

“This opportunity will ensure that we, along with other stakeholders, contribute to both the community and regional economy positively over this period.”

The scope of the contract includes construction works including internal walls, ceilings and screeding, painting, joinery and fit-out.

The contractor will work alongside all project stakeholders to ensure Sellafield’s mission is successful as it works to decommission the site and create a clean and safe environment for the future.
