Dounreay awards multimillion decommissioning contracts to Jacobs

Jacobs will upgrade the ventilation system at the Prototype Fast Reactor (PFR), removing the existing system and replacing it with a new discharge stack, fans, filters and monitoring equipment.

The company will also develop the decommissioning strategy for the fast reactor fuel reprocessing plant in the Fuel Cycle Area.

Head of Reactors Phil Cartwright said:

At PFR there are a number of unique decommissioning challenges. Replacement of the ventilation system will enable us to safely complete the decommissioning work, whilst ensuring the required environmental controls are in place, over the next 10-15 years.
