Type B Manufacture — Industry Day.
LLW Repository Ltd | Published April 30, 2015
LLW Repository Ltd (LLWR) is a UK nuclear waste management company that provides services to UK customers to treat and dispose of low level radioactive waste. On behalf of the UK's Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, we manage the national Low Level Waste Repository in West Cumbria and oversee a national Low Level Waste programme to ensure that lower activity radioactive waste is managed effectively across the UK.
LLWR's customers include nuclear decommissioning and power companies, defence sites, the healthcare sector, research establishments and other industries within the UK. Our waste services help customers manage their lower activity radioactive waste efficiently to reduce disposal volumes and preserve capacity at the Low Level Waste Repository. Customers can access a wide range of treatment and disposal services to ensure waste is managed safely and effectively. More information about LLWR can be found via our website: www.llwrsite.com
LLWR requires various packaging services to support our radioactive waste treatment and disposal activities. One such requirement is for the fabrication of a number of conventional Type B Novapak Packaging assets (also commonly referred to as Novapak Type B fissile containers) to be used by entities throughout the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority estate for the movement of fissile material.
The Novapak packaging design consists of an inner packaging and an outer box. The outer box is an open cubic structure made up of stainless steel sections welded together with vertical, horizontal and diagonal strengthening members. Cork lined thermal shielding panels and aluminium cladding surround this structure. The inner structure is primarily comprised of a base plate upon which drums are placed, and an upper frame sub-assembly with tubular sections.
LLWR has a requirement for a competent metal fabricator to provide the following services:-
— Undertake fabrication of multiple Type B Novapak Packaging assets;
— Implement Quality arrangements as required;
— Undertake testing activities to ensure specification compliance.
Suppliers interested in this tender opportunity are invited to attend an Industry Day on Tuesday 2.6.2015 in Penrith, Cumbria (exact details to be confirmed closer to the event). LLWR will present an overview of the contract scope and invite comments.
