02/11/2014


London, United Kingdom (3 November 2014) "- AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Romanian Nuclear and Radioactive Waste Agency (ANDR) to provide expert technical advice on the safe disposal of radioactive waste from the country's nuclear plants.

Andy White, Vice President of AMEC's Nuclear Services business, said: "We are delighted to have been chosen by the Romanian government to advise on the critically important issue of dealing with nuclear waste materials. AMEC is a world-leader in this field, which we expect will only grow as the world's first generation of nuclear plants come offline."

ANDR, a national institution reporting to the Ministry of Economy, is responsible for the safe storage and disposal of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel on behalf of the Romanian Government. It is planning to develop a waste repository at Saligny, near to the Cernavoda nuclear power plant.

The agreement will see ANDR and AMEC work together to develop a national strategy to decommission Romania's nuclear facilities and provide long-term storage for radioactive waste.

The official signing of the Memorandum of Understanding took place at the British Embassy in Bucharest hosted by the UK Ambassador, Paul Brummell. It was signed by Florin Tatar, President of ANDR and Andy White.
