AMEC has been awarded one of three framework contracts by Horizon Nuclear Power to provide specialist engineering and technical design services for its proposed nuclear power stations at Wylfa on Anglesey and Oldbury in South Gloucestershire.
Under its three-year contract, the value of which has not been announced, AMEC will provide Horizon with environmental consultancy and technical services to enable the permitting, licensing and regulatory consents process for the proposed reactors at Wylfa and Oldbury.
Clive White, President of AMEC’s Clean Energy Europe business, said: “We are proud to have been selected as one of Horizon’s key supply chain partners for this prestigious programme.
“AMEC has been involved in every single new build programme in the UK, and having the opportunity to partner with Horizon will allow us to support the delivery of nuclear power stations at Wylfa and Oldbury, which will be a huge investment in the UK’s nuclear industry, creating both national and local employment opportunities.”
Horizon Chief Operating Officer Alan Raymant said: “These contracts underline our aspiration to become a leading new nuclear utility company and demonstrate real momentum. Working with our new framework suppliers and their supply chains, I‘m confident we will continue to progress our detailed plans as we prepare for our first formal public consultation next year. The signing of these contracts also highlights our commitment to working with UK suppliers where possible.”
