More news, no ads


A Chatteris firm is to play its part after its parent company Avingtrans secured a £4.4m nuclear contract.

Stainless Metalcraft, Hayward Tyler Fluid Handling (HTFH) and Hayward Tyler (HT) will work on the contract secured with Doosan Babcock to supply remote maintenance pumps for use by a leading UK nuclear energy company as part of the Programme and Project Partners (PPP) approach.

The contract will see the three companies - which are all part of Avingtrans PLC - work together as part of a Goods Supply Agreement to Doosan Babcock, one of PPP’s world class partners delivering the Sellafield site's decommissioning programme.

Austen Adams, divisional managing director of Avingtrans' Process Solutions and Rotating Equipment division, said: “We’re delighted to have secured this contract and to be working in conjunction with our sister company in Avingtrans’ Engineered Pumps and Motors division - Hayward Tyler - to deliver best value for our customer.

“All three businesses have a strong track record delivering performance-critical solutions to the nuclear industry and we’re confident that by combining expertise and resources we will be able to offer a high-quality, high-value solution.”

The contract will see teams at Metalcraft, HTFH (East Kilbride) and HT (Luton) working together to manufacture remote maintenance pumps, which will form a critical part of the SIXEP Continuity Plant (SCP). SIXEP is referred to as “the kidneys of the site” which does vital work to clean Sellafield’s liquid effluents before discharge to the sea. The SCP project will replace this facility.

The contract will be executed over a period of two years. The news marks a further strengthening of Avingtrans’ position in the nuclear energy industry, following hot on the heels of Metalcraft’s enhanced contract with Sellafield to supply 3m3 stainless steel boxes for the storage of intermediate level waste at its Pile Fuel Cladding and Magnox Swarf Silos, and Hayward Tyler’s licence agreement with Ruhrpumpen to supply safety-related products, maintenance and repair services to nuclear power plants worldwide.
