Waste Characterisation Services

As part of its role as NDA's Low Level Waste management contractor, LLWR is leading the implementation of the UK Strategy for the Management of Solid Low Level Radioactive Waste from the Nuclear Industry through the National Waste Programme for Lower Activity Wastes. The core objective is to implement the Waste Management Hierarchy to prolong the life of the Low Level Waste Repository. At the heart of LLWR's mission is the provision of services that provide alternative options to waste producers to preserve Repository capacity. The Waste Services Contract (WSC) allows Customers to access LLWR's suite of Waste and Logistic Services. The planned Waste Characterisation Services procurement is for a 4-year multi-supplier framework covering a range of radioactive waste characterisation needs. Suppliers will enter into the framework with LLWR. LLWR's Customers can utilise the framework services via the WSC with LLWR (please refer to Section VI - Complementary Information for details). This PIN is to initiate early engagement with the supply chain regarding the future Waste Characterisation Services procurement. This will help us to develop our strategy and scope. LLWR's intention is to procure a framework agreement with 5 to 8 suppliers covering the following radioactive waste characterisation lifecycle requirements: • Project management; • Pre-operational investigations; • On-site sampling operations; • Packaging; • Transport; • Analysis; • Interpretation, reporting and option identification; • Measurement services; • Sample retention and disposal. For more information about the framework, and the opportunity to complete a questionnaire to provide feedback and notify your interest in bidding, please accept the CTM invitation. You can then access an information pack via the Documents area of CTM. Please note that completed questionnaires are required by midday on Friday 31st July 2020.
