Supply Chain

Box Encapsulation Plant (BEP) Project

The Box Encapsulation Plant Delivery Team is an unincorporated joint venture of Amec Foster Wheeler, Balfour Beatty and Jacobs.

The framework contract for the project was awarded in October 2014 and is being delivered as an integral part of the Magnox Swarf Storage Silo (MSSS) programme for Sellafield Ltd, which is tackling the clean-up of one of the most hazardous legacy facilities on the Sellafield site.

When complete BEP will deliver the capability to treat nuclear waste recovered from MSSS, immobilise it and prepare it for storage. In addition the BEP may also process waste recovered during the decommissioning of other Sellafield facilities including the First Generation Magnox Storage Pond (FGMSP) and the Pile Fuel Storage Pond (PFSP).

We are delighted to be working with Cumbria Business Growth Hub to support the Cumbrian Supply Chain during this project by identifying development needs for local companies and signposting to business support and training solutions where applicable.

We are interested in working with SME’s (Small and Medium Sized Enterprises), to help us create a strong, innovative and collaborative supply chain as this is vital to successful delivery of this project.

Open Communication

We believe open communication between ourselves and our supply chain is of benefit to both parties and we use a number of communication channels to achieve this.

  • We issue a monthly Supply Chain newsletter listing procurement packages to be tendered in the next two months. We also give details of recent contract awards to enable you to contact the successful companies about opportunities to supply to them. Please email if you’d like to receive this newsletter.
  • We list our procurement packages online at Contracts Finder (search for BEP Delivery Team) and on the BEC Business Cluster Opportunities page.
  • We regularly attend networking and exhibition events so you can have a direct conversation with us.
