Nuvia Limited’s team awarded Management role for decommissioning programme in Bulgaria

Nuvia, the international nuclear delivery specialist, has been awarded the prestigious contract to provide the Programme Management Unit (PMU) to oversee the decommissioning of the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant.

Along with its Spanish partner Empresarios Agrupados Internacinal, Nuvia will be responsible for managing site decommissioning and the design and construction of a waste disposal facility for Bulgaria’s State Enterprise for Radioactive Waste (SERAW).

The €600m programme is part of the Kozloduy International Decommissioning Support Fund (KIDSF) which is provided by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). This latest award builds on Nuvia’s Eastern Europe track record, including delivering various contracts for the EBRD and DECC. During 2012 Nuvia received outstanding praise from EBRD for its work in Northern Russia and Kazakhstan.

This contract, along with Nuvia’s recent acquisition of Czech subsidiary Envinet, provides a strong base to grow the business in Eastern Europe. Further work is being targeted in Ukraine, Slovakia and Russia.

Keith Collett, Nuvia Limited’s CEO said: “Along with our partners, we are delighted with this contract award. It demonstrates Nuvia’s global credibility for decommissioning and waste management and confirms the confidence which our customers have in our ability to deliver complex programmes of work. Together we look forward to mutual success working with SERAW.”
