Speedy has secured a three year agreement to supply lifting consumables to the nuclear processing sites Sellafield, Magnox, Dounreay and the remaining Nuclear Decommissioning Authority estate.

The FTSE-listed support services business will supply all of the lifting equipment necessary to undertake maintenance at the sites.

Speedy estimate the agreement could be worth in excess of £2 million over the term of the contract. The company has previously supplied hire equipment to Sellafield on an ad hoc basis.

The UK’s leading supplier of equipment and support services already have several nuclear clients with this long term contract representing further growth in the sector.

Speedy will also be providing on-site support for employees in addition to testing, inspecting and repair work on lifting equipment on site.

Martin Rusher, Operations Director, Speedy Engineering Services, said: “The very nature of nuclear decommissioning work such as those at Sellafield often require very sensitive lifting operations in which there is little margin for error.

“Each lifting task requires both careful logistical planning and the use of reliable, specialist equipment. It’s also vital that operatives are fully trained in how to use each piece of kit to help complete work effectively and efficiently.

“The nuclear sector is a key growth area for us and one in which we can provide tailored lifting support packages such as this agreement with Sellafield, which is our biggest within the decommissioning sector to date.”
