Veolia Nuclear Solutions deploys contaminated water treatment systems at four Magnox UK sites
Veolia has announced that its Nuclear Solutions entity, through its subsidiary Kurion, will deploy effluent treatment systems at four Magnox sites in the UK under a new contract between the two firms. Under the agreement with Magnox, Veolia will design, build and install the new systems at the four sites, enabling the removal of contaminated waste from the sites’ active effluent water treatment, ponds water filtration, and cesium removal plants.
Veolia will provide modular active effluent treatment plants (MAETPs), similar to those used to assist in the response at Fukushima Daiichi, at the Chapelcross, Hinkley Point A, Oldbury and Dungeness A sites. The technologies to be deployed will use multiple water treatment technologies to remove the radioactive substances from the effluent water before it is discharged to the sea.
The Magnox project is scheduled to run through 2020 with the delivery of the first two MAETP systems scheduled for 2018.
The design phase of the contract is expected to be completed at Veolia’s Richland, WA offices, with subsequent fabrication of the units to be completed by UK-based firms under the supervision of the Veolia team.
