A Cleator Moor firm has been awarded a £2 million contract for a major nuclear player.

Consultancy Prima Uno, which specialises in project controls, risk management, plus programme and project management, has won the contract with International Nuclear Services.

International Nuclear Services, involved in the transport and management fuels, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

Prima Uno has won the four-year framework for the Provision of Project Delivery and will be managed by its managing director Sarah Purdham and director Rachel Starkey.

Sarah said: “Winning this framework means so much to me and all of our staff.

"We can continue our successful relationship with INS on a journey to deliver its long-term goal and mission.

"Winning this contract will assist in Prima Uno evolving from a project controls consultancy into our goal of increasing our service offering in portfolio, programme and project management.

"We worked tirelessly in tendering for this opportunity.

"Winning this framework was a huge target for us as we wanted to make a difference to INS.

"Our demonstrable experience helping blue chip clients achieve leading performance puts us in a wonderful position to deliver value to INS.

"Winning this contract will mean we will be increasing our team in Cumbria and Warrington.

“This success is down to the exceptional service we provide and the quality of the people that work for us.

"The whole ethos of Prima Uno is providing a quality service and offering something different.

"Our behaviours and values are very important at Prima Uno and all our staff embrace them.

"You are only as good as the people you employ and Prima Uno employees some very talented people.”

Prima Uno was set up in September 2012 by Sarah in her home, and now has three offices across the country, including its head office in Cleator Moor.

Its contracts include support for Transport for London, Terminal 5 at Heathrow and London’s Wembley stadium.

Clients include nuclear, civil, rail and utility companies.
