The three-year contract will see AMEC providing services against specific tasks nominated by Urenco.

The contract will be operated from a number of locations in the UK.

AMEC nuclear business vice president Clive White said this is a very important contract for a major player in the UK nuclear industry.

"The contract will help develop the company’s position as a leading provider at the front end of the nuclear cycle, to complement our strong position in reactor support and clean up," White said.
