Cavendish Nuclear (a BECBC member), part of the Babcock International Group, has successfully secured a contract in Canada. The Group will be delivering consultancy services to support licensing of a used fuel transportation package and assessments for long-term used fuel storage.

Contracted through a strategic partnership with Calian Nuclear, a Canadian nuclear solutions provider, work is already being delivered against the scope, which involves the delivery of fuel burnup calculations and specialist nuclear materials assessments to underpin the relevant safety cases.

Babcock is already well established in Canada, providing services in both the Marine and Aviation sectors. Since 2008, Babcock has been trusted to deliver key naval in- service support to the Royal Canadian Navy’s fleet of Victoria Class submarines. Babcock also provides aerial wildfire suppression and air ambulance services to the Government of Manitoba.

Mike Whalley, President of Babcock Canada said, “As a leading player in the nuclear industry in the UK, we look forward to being able to apply our knowledge and expertise in these areas in Canada as future opportunities come to market.

“Cavendish Nuclear is experienced in providing services across all aspects of the nuclear energy life-cycle, from design and build, through operations and maintenance, to decommissioning, waste management and remediation.”
