LLW Repository Ltd is a waste management company that provides services to customers to treat and dispose of low level radioactive waste.


It manages the national Low Level Waste Repository in West Cumbria on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) and oversees a National LLW Programme to ensure that lower activity waste is managed effectively across the UK.


International consortium UK Nuclear Waste Management (UKNWM) won the 17-year contract to act as Parent Body Organisation (PBO) in 2008.

The contract was the first of its type for site owner Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) and the nuclear industry as a whole.

The PBO owns the shares in LLW Repository Ltd, the Site Licence Company (SLC), for the period of the contract.

UKNWM consists of AECOM, one of the world’s largest firms in the construction and engineering sector, Studsvik UK, who provide recognised expertise in the treatment and management of nuclear waste and Areva, the world’s largest nuclear service provider.
