LINC with Dounreay

LINC with Dounreay


Dounreay was once the UK’s centre of fast reactor research and development and is now Scotland’s largest nuclear clean up and demolition project. Recognised as one of the most complex closure programmes in Europe, the site is expected to reach an interim end state between 2030 and 2033.

That can only be achieved with a strong partnership between the Dounreay Site Restoration Limited (DSRL) workforce and the supply chain.


LINC with Dounreay is a scheme set up to encourage small and medium enterprises (SMEs) at a local and national level to collaborate with each other to deliver innovative solutions that support the Dounreay decommissioning programme.

A series of work packages will be identified focusing on the various challenges faced across the site, with around two opportunities per quarter advertised on this page. The collaborating companies will then have four weeks to work together on a solution and submit their priced proposal of work.

Companies are invited to register interest now to receive information directly as it becomes available, with the first package of work expected to be published during September 2017.

Full details about the scheme were recently presented at the 2017 Nuclear Supply Chain event in Dunblane and the presentation can be viewed here.
