Engineering consultancy Amec Foster Wheeler has announced a new à‚£125m ($152m) agreement to provide long-term support to EDF Energy Nuclear Generation in the UK.
Under the deal, Amec Foster Wheeler will continue its operational support for the UK reactor fleet, which began more than 50 years ago.
The agreement is for five years, with an option to extend for a further five.
Amec Foster Wheeler said that it expects the contract to generate annual revenues of between à‚£25m and à‚£30m.
Stuart Crooks, EDF Energy’s managing director of generation, said: “Amec Foster Wheeler has worked in partnership with EDF Energy for a number of years and shares our vision for zero harm, exceptional nuclear safety performance, and world record-breaking results. The support of all our strategic partners is an important factor as we continue to operate our nuclear stations to the highest standards, providing secure, low-carbon, affordable power for the UK.”
