MITIE SECURITY, the intelligence and technology-led security provider, has been awarded a new five-year contract extension by Westinghouse Springfields Fuels Ltd.
The contract extension will build on Mitie’s decade-long partnership with Westinghouse Springfields Fuels Ltd, a nuclear fuel production facility responsible for designing, manufacturing and delivering fuel for nuclear power stations both here in the UK and on the international stage.
Mitie will continue to provide a range of key security services including security personnel and visitor concierge, emergency response (encompassing fire and medical support), vehicle and personnel checks, access and egress checking and intelligence reporting.
A key part of Mitie’s service delivery underpinning this contract will be its Merlin Protect 24/7 intelligence technology. The business intelligence software will give the security and emergency response service teams at Westinghouse Springfields Fuels Ltd access to real-time insights and trend analyses across all operations. This will enable team members to quickly identify operational issues, record and report hazardous incidents, easily locate fire access points and seamlessly share key intelligence with colleagues.
Security guarding duties
The new Westinghouse Springfields Fuels Ltd contract extension follows an initial period in which Mitie took over the Emergency Control Centre on site and enhanced the team with fully trained and security cleared firefighters to ensure the safety and security of the facility in addition to providing Control Room and security guarding duties.
Jason Towse, managing director of business services at Mitie, said: “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Westinghouse Springfields Fuel Ltd after what has been a very successful ten years of working together. Fire and security services are business-critical for the operations of such a key fuel production facility. Our intelligence-led services, combined with our emergency response expertise, will ensure that Westinghouse Springfields Fuel Ltd can operate as safely and securely as possible.”
Paul Lomas, site director at Westinghouse Springfields Fuels Ltd, responded: “We are looking forward to continuing our relationship with Mitie, which supports our key priority of remaining safe and secure at all times. We are proud that many of our firefighters on this contract also volunteer with the Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service. Over the last few years, we’ve worked together with Mitie to create sustainable employment in the area through hiring and training people from our local community.”
