Nuvia winner of prestigious NDA Supply Chain Award

We are delighted to announce that Nuvia Limited has won the NDA Supply Chain Export Award, an award for companies who have successfully exported overseas, from concepts, products and services originally conceived or implemented in the NDA estate.

Nuvia’s submission celebrated its work on the Ignalina spent fuel store in Lithuania. Nuvia completed the design, manufacture, installation and testing of fuel handling equipment for the project.

The fuel-handling equipment incorporated Nuvia’s knowledge gained from the team’s combined experience of remote handling equipment designs, including designs for nuclear fuel grabs, remote cranes and their controls and safety systems acquired form working over many years on NDA estate projects.

These prestigious annual awards recognise the vital contribution of suppliers to the UK’s nuclear clean-up mission and the award celebrations were among the highlights of the NDA Estate Supply Chain Event, held at EventCity on 3 November.

Chair of the judging panel, Ron Gorham, the NDA’s Head of Supply Chain optimisation and SME Champion, said:

Our suppliers play a critical role in delivering timely, cost-effective decommissioning across our sites, and we are delighted to acknowledge their vital contribution. I was particularly pleased with the quality and variety for our new enhancing capability and capacity award.

These awards celebrate the commitment of our supply chain and the value they bring on a daily basis.

Nuvia’s Operations Director, Dave Millington commented:

Being recognised for this award by the NDA means a great deal to Nuvia and acknowledges our efforts to develop capability and adhere to our principles. We value our people and our knowledge, so to be recognised for exporting best practice and expertise on a global platform, with the aim of providing the best possible outcome for our clients is a fantastic achievement.
