EnergySolutions Inc., the Utah-based nuclear-services company, is considering the sale of its U.K. and European business, which includes a contract to operate 22 Magnox reactors.

The company’s contract with the U.K.’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority to manage and operate the reactors began in June 2007. The authority has raised no objections to a potential sale, the Salt Lake City-based company said.

The announcement was made before the start of regular trading on U.S. markets. EnergySolutions’ shares closed Tuesday at $1.73, up 10.5 cents, or 6.44 percent for the day.
