BT lands $54.5m deal with Sellafield

British telecommunications company BT has secured a five-year, £32 million ($54.5 million) network services contract with nuclear site operator Sellafield.

The agreement will cover the maintenance of all of BT’s network services, as well as upgrades and updates to current equipment.

Covered upgrades also include LAN services, basic and gateway services, as well as hearings and conferencing, telephony and cybersecurity.

BT’s network upgrade will allow Sellafield to take advantage of new technologies such as the Internet of Things and 5G in the future.

As part of the deal, BT will provide £2 million ($3.4 million) in funding for local social value initiatives in West Cumbria and will be distributed by the social impact team of Sellafield.

“In a major boost for the region, not only will we be delivering Sellafield’s digital transformation as part of the contract, but we will also be giving a significant boost to the local community. Over the life of the partnership, we will invest £2m ($3.4m) in West Cumbria to help tackle the causes of inequality among the region’s most vulnerable people,” said Ashish Gupta, managing director of BT’s business unit, businesses and public sector.

“It is really positive to see such a strong commitment from BT through this contract to support the implementation of our Social Impact Multiplied programme,” said Tracey West, Social Impact Manager at Sellafield.
