NuGen deal

by Mark Rowe

Mitie, the facilities management company, has been awarded a three-year security contract with UK nuclear company NuGen.

The FM contractor’s Total Security Management business was successful in the competitive tender process, securing a three-year contract to provide security personnel at three of NuGen’s sites. The FM firm has already been providing NuGen with site security cover for around 12 months. Under this new agreement, which runs until 2018, Mitie will manage security at the site of the Moorside Project – close to Sellafield in west Cumbria – as well as NuGen’s head offices in Manchester and at the company’s Moorside Information Centre at Whitehaven Civic Hall.

Mitie points to its critical security sector expertise and its online operations software, WorkPlace+, which gives the client access to real-time contract management information.

Sam Stephens, NuGen’s Head of Security, said: “The safety and security of both our workforce and the public is an overriding priority. Our work will continue to increase as we progress through our development phase and placing this contract demonstrates our commitment to progressing the Moorside Project with the highest regard for security and safety.” And Jason Towse, Managing Director of Mitie’s Total Security Management business, said: “We want to give our clients the reassurance that they are working with sector experts, which is of paramount importance in critical security environments.”

About the firm

NuGen is in the development phase of a project to build three AP1000 reactors, which will generate up to 3.6GW of low-carbon electricity – equivalent to seven per-cent of the UK’s electricity requirements and enough to power up to six million homes. The first of the three Westinghouse AP1000 reactors is targeted to come online in the mid 2020s.
