General Notification to Suppliers

NNL delivers a number nationally important programmes of work. As such, we will maintain safe operations at all our sites, including the operational sites at Sellafield, Springfields and Workington. We have discussed this with the site licence companies and they full understand the importance of these key programmes and will support the delivery of these programmes. Senior management of the site licencees are also content with the actions that NNL have taken to date.

However, we will be pausing some projects that are considered non-critical or where our customers have asked us to postpone.

As a result, we are asking our supply chain to continue to make delivers of goods and provide services as normal, unless they have specifically been instructed NOT to do so by their NNL contact. If you are unsure, or unable to undertake normal service, we understand, and will provide you with as much support as we can.


Please note that the Lillyhall site will be working on reduced hours and can only accept deliveries until 10:30am. Suppliers should continue to book a delivery through At present, we have not been informed of any changes to delivery schedules at other sites.

If you have difficulty in delivering goods, please contact the person named on your purchase order.
