Read the PPP anouncement from Sellafield Ltd
John Grainger of BECBC welcomed the Programme and Project Partners announcement. “Sellafield Limited have kept us closely appraised of the schedule leading to the revealing of the Lot winners. Far from closing the market to the inherent Supply Chain this is a tremendous opportunity to supply for our members,” he said. “This is a 20 year framework so it is a genuine long term programme of work. The Supply Chain Development Team shared with us recently the way that the four different Lots will be cascaded down. The Trade Packages as part of the PPP scheme show an open and transparent approach to how Sellafield Limited will use large and small suppliers to deliver their mission, so we look forward to early engagement with Lot winners to maximise the opportunity for our members in the Supply Chain.
The PPP announcement rounds off a great month of new initiatives. “ I am particularly delighted that in these uncertain times as far as the UK economy is concerned that there has been so much positive news that benefits the economy of Cumbria. Business thrives on confidence and the Borderlands Growth Deal, the Garden Village Scheme with the new southern by pass at Carlisle, a firm date for commercial flights from Carlisle Lake District Airport and this multi million pound long term programme are just the sort of positive indicators we have all been working towards. But it won’t stop there, with innovation and clean growth technologies high on the list of our ambitions, there is a fresh impetus in Cumbria , reinforced by these positive schemes that can only demonstrate that this is a genuinely investable community that will attract further inward investment. “
