£1.5m nuclear waste management contract a ‘game changer’ for Cumbrian SME02 February 2022

Lee Grears

Responsive, a provider of destructive and non-destructive testing and training, has won a ‘game changing’ £1.5m contract to provide inspection services to the UK’s nuclear waste management sector.

The four-year deal is with the LLW Repository Ltd (LLWR) in Cumbria to supply the inspection resource and capability of the Expert Support and Alternative Treatment (ESAT) Framework.

Responsive was chosen for the contract after proving its competency while working on a major 18-month project with LLWR, covering quality inspection and testing support.

As part of the new contract, Responsive will test and inspect containers transporting low level waste across the UK to ensure they are fit for purpose to avoid any potentially hazardous incidents. The process is likened to a vehicle’s MOT as each container requires certification and sign-off before they can be used.

Lee Grears, the founder and chief executive officer of Responsive, said: “When I started the businesses we were told repeatedly that we didn’t have the capability experience and wouldn’t be able to pull off the contracts which had a real impact across the UK. But we have shown through determination and a lot of hard work that we are capable of delivering the very highest standards and produce work which highly-regulated industries across the UK have total confidence in.”
