Silverdell awarded £12 million decommissioning and re-sale contract in Canada


Silverdell PLC (AIM: SID), the Specialist Environmental Support Services group, announces that it has signed a contract with Hydro Québec, Canada's largest electricity generator, for the decommissioning and parts re-sale of its redundant Tracy thermal power plant in a project worth approximately £12 million in revenues to Silverdell.


Under the terms of the agreement, Silverdell will market approximately 37,000 tonnes of re-usable plant, equipment and metals for industrial sale. The Group will then undertake the decommissioning of the power plant, including asbestos removal, dismantling and the sale of the reusable assets.


Work is scheduled to commence in Q2 2013 and is expected to complete within 12 months.


Sean Nutley, Chief Executive Officer for Silverdell Plc, commented:


"A key part of our growth strategy, 'Changing the Landscape', as set out in our preliminary results statement last December, is to leverage our enhanced scale and capability to exploit new market opportunities worldwide. That is exactly what we have done with this contract. The acquisition of EDS afforded us entry to the high value global decommissioning and re-sale market with a project which is ideally suited to our end-to-end service offering."
