SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake City-based EnergySolutions is no longer bidding for a five-year, $10 billion contract to run nuclear sites in the United Kingdom.

Philip Strawbridge, EnergySolutions International group president, says the company needs to focus on its other U.K. business.

The company is already bidding to manage the U.K.'s national repository of low-level radioactive waste and pursuing the decommissioning of U.K. reactor sites.

Strawbridge says the company shouldn't lead all three efforts, but the decision doesn't diminish the company's global efforts.
