First Moorside contract put out to tender
Last updated at 15:53, Friday, 25 July 2014
The first contract has been put out to tender for the Moorside nuclear facility in Cumbria.
A firm is being sought to obtain samples from material underground, which will give an insight into the history of glacial movements in the area.
RIZZO Associates, acting as principal contractor, is inviting businesses to apply for the work before August 8.
The drive to create Moorside is set to create more than £10bn of investment and 21,000 jobs.
Anand K. Boscha, senior engineer at RIZZO, said: “Proposal evaluation will consider qualifications, schedule readiness, quality assurance experience, and responsiveness in addition to price.
“RIZZO is not bound to select the lowest bid or any responding bidder.”
Details of a separate, larger scope of work are also expected to be let in the next two to three weeks.
Applications are to be submitted electronically to Moorside@rizzoassoc.com
NuGen is overseeing feasibility studies and testing on the site until 2018.
It will then show the government the results in the hope that the green light will be given to build the new site.
The following two years will be spent clearing the site and getting it ready for the reactors to be put in place.
The first reactor would start to be put in place in 2020, and all would be in by 2024.
All three would be connected to the grid by 2026.
