Sellafield

APM Corporate Accreditation case study

Sellafield Ltd is responsible for safely delivering decommissioning, reprocessing, nuclear waste management and fuel manufacturing activities on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. With over 50 years’ experience, it has the largest concentration of nuclear expertise in Europe carrying out some of the most innovative and complex nuclear activities in the world.

It is now owned by Nuclear Management Partners (NMP), which brings together the global nuclear experience of American company URS, British company Amec and French company Areva to deliver the safe acceleration of hazard and risk reduction across the business.

The Sellafield site in West Cumbria is spread across six square kilometres and is home to more than 1,000 facilities performing a wide range of tasks. These include decommissioning the UK’s nuclear legacy as well as fuel recycling, manufacturing and the management of low, intermediate and high level nuclear waste.

The site at Capenhurst in Cheshire is due to become the UK’s first nuclear site to complete its decommissioning and clean-up programme – and on the way has delivered the biggest demolition projects ever undertaken in the UK nuclear industry.

Employees at Risley, near Warrington, also provide project management, engineering, design and other functional support capabilities.
