Britain’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) has given a notice of termination to Cavendish Fluor Partnership (CFP) for its management and decommissioning of the country’s 12 Magnox nuclear power reactors and research sites, it said on Friday. The termination notice was effective from Sept. 1 and allows for a 24-month notice period, ending CFP’s contract on Aug. 31, 2019. CFP – a joint venture between British firm Cavendish Nuclear, a subsidiary of Babcock International, and U.S. company Fluor Inc. – was awarded the contract in 2014. But earlier this year the government said there was a “mismatch” between the work specified in the contract and the work that actually needed to be done.
