Rueil-Malmaison - 21 May 2007
VINCI Construction subsidiary Freyssinet, which specialises in civil engineering with high technical content, has just acquired NUKEM Ltd. NUKEM Ltd is a U.K. leader in nuclear facility decommissioning, decontamination, waste treatment and radiation protection.
The company has approximately 1,000 employees, of which xxx engineers, and expects to generate revenue of nearly €120 million in 2007, primarily in the United Kingdom.
NUKEM Ltd operates at all British nuclear sites and thus has acknowledged expertise and a track record in the nuclear industry. The company is ideally positioned on its markets to take part in the accelerated decommissioning of existing sites recently decided by the British government.
The acquisition of NUKEM rounds out the offering of Freyssinet, which provides nuclear industry services on the French market through its specialised subsidiaries.
