We are delighted to have been awarded a three-year contract to provide asbestos services to Sellafield Limited.

The comprehensive scope of the contract includes the provision of asbestos surveys and re-inspections, sample collection and analysis, analytical monitoring services, site management of abatement works, asbestos technical specification and project management.

The new three-year contract, which has an additional one-year option, will allow us to maintain our role as a Tier 2 supplier to Sellafield Ltd, a status we have held since we commenced work with Sellafield Ltd in 2014 when we were awarded a contract to provide asbestos analytical services worth £2 million.

James New, Sellafield Site Contract Manager and North West Regional Manager at Franks Portlock, commented: “We are delighted to be awarded this three-year (plus 1) contract with Sellafield Ltd and to announce our continued support to both Sellafield Ltd and the wider nuclear industry. In addition, the expansion into full asbestos service provision means we can look forward to developing and growing our relationships and support within the nuclear supply chain, as well as within the local West Cumbria community.

“Our contract award is due significantly to the disciplined, safe working and professional standards attained by our Sellafield site team over the last six years and is a testament to the pride they take in their roles as nuclear professionals. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Franks Portlock team, with special recognition to Alex Edminson and Lawrence Clack for all their hard work and support.”

“We are looking forward to collaborating with Sellafield Ltd in a collaborative approach to the framework, using our knowledge and expertise to provide Sellafield with a strong and dynamic model for asbestos management.”
