MPP Early Market Engagement - A strategic decision has been taken by SL's Supply Chain Directorate and the Manufactured Products Organisation that all future products will be procured through the future manufactured products commercial vehicle - which is called the Manufactured Products Partnership (MPP). This includes the 3m3 Boxes and Decommissioning Contact Handleable Intermediate Level Waste (CHILW) containers as the immediate demand (contracts required from circa 2028) and a range of future products required when existing contracts expire, or new containment solutions are matured.

This is our first engagement and we are looking for feedback on the art of the possible. Please complete the questionnaire and submit any questions you would like to discuss further with Sellafield as part of this early phase of development.
