Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) announced today that its ACKtiv Nuclear Joint Venture (comprised of Jacobs, Carillion and Atkins) received the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s (NDA) Estate Supplier Award for “Best Example of Innovation by a Large Company,” for a project at Sellafield Limited in the United Kingdom.

The award recognizes the joint venture for its development of an innovative method for safe removal of protective cementitious grout work on the Isolations and Risk Reduction Project at the Sellafield site.

The award reflects Jacobs' long standing commitment to continuous improvement in the safe delivery of high-quality projects for Sellafield."
