Cumbrian firm lands £40m Sellafield civils role

Cumbrian firm Stobbarts has won a £40m infrastructure deal at Sellafield nuclear power station.

The Workington firm will support Sir Robert McAlpine on groundworks and concrete jobs at the sprawling Cumbrian plant.

The contractor was appointed by Sellafield’s Programme and Project Partners (PPP), a coalition of Kellogg Brown and Root, Jacobs, Morgan Sindall Infrastructure, Altrad Babcock and Sellafield Ltd.

Since mobilising in 2019, the partners have awarded decommissioning-related contracts with a potential value of £3bn to some 200 suppliers, two-thirds of which are small or medium sized.

Head of PPP supply chain John Rossiter said: “The PPP model is entering an exciting period as we start to see the growth of our tier three layer of suppliers joining the enterprise.

“The model is truly pioneering and a radical shift in how major projects have been delivered to date. It’s incredible to see true collaboration and the benefits being realised as our supply chain grows.”

Stobbarts said the 15-year deal would allow it to increase apprenticeship numbers and employ local people.

Director Adam Stobbart added: “We have a steadfast commitment to West Cumbria; to create jobs, invest and deliver social impact.

“As we embark on this new chapter, we remain committed to innovation, sustainability and community enrichment.

“Together with our partners and stakeholders, we look forward to shaping a brighter future for West Cumbria and beyond.”

Stobbarts will continue to support community groups and charities including the Bee Unique Autism charity, a football club for children with special educational needs, and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
