Parsons Brinkerhoff will provide ‘technical support’ for an underground nuclear waste repository in the UK after signing a contract with the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA). No details are available yet on the plan or PB’s exact role. But they have been involved in the project since 2005 through their membership in a consortium of companies and organizations known as Orchid.
Alongside Parsons Brinckerhoff, the Orchid group consists of Nuvia, Gardiner & Theobald, National Nuclear Laboratory, SKB International, University of Manchester, Oxford Technologies, Nuclear Technologies and the British Geological Survey.
