Nuvia awarded Dungeness Waste Transfer Area Facility Contract

11 September 2018

Nuvia has secured a contract from Magnox to design, supply, integrate and commission plant and equipment for the Dungeness Waste Transfer Area (WTA) Facility.


The WTA retrieve, process and package ILW from buffer storage packages into final transport and disposal packages. The WTA will process multiple waste streams, so flexibility of plant and equipment is required, and all the equipment needs to be configured within the confines of an existing building.

The Nuvia team will draw from over 50-years’ experience of successfully delivering some of the most challenging projects and will work collaboratively with our customer and supply chain to provide cost effective and value-adding solutions.

Commenting on securing this major contract, John Ball, Operations Director of Nuvia, said:

“We are delighted to have been chosen to deliver this interesting project, which will assist Magnox in its mission to remove the solid wastes and further its whole decommissioning programme. We look forward to a continuing collaborative relationship.”
