Wood has won a multi-million dollar contract to provide engineering and technical services to Hinkley Point C (HPC), the UKs first new nuclear power station for more than 20 years.
Effective immediately, the Hinkley Technical Support Alliance (HTSA) agreement will last for five years with an optional five-year extension.
Wood will provide station developers EDF Energy with full life cycle services to improve project delivery and commercial performance.
Bob MacDonald, CEO of Woods Specialist Technical Solutions business, said: We are looking forward to providing additional support to EDF Energy on a project which is vital to the UKs energy security and the transition to a lower carbon energy mix. This positions us as a key strategic partner at Hinkley Point C, maintaining our track record of playing a key role in every UK nuclear new build project since the inception of the industry.
Covering technical and engineering services across all elements of the project, the HTSA agreement will also improve the projects technical supply chain delivery.
Wood already provides similar professional services to EDF Energy Nuclear Generation under a long-term agreement to support the UKs eight existing nuclear power stations.
At Hinkley Point C, Wood provides construction design management advisory services, safety case and engineering support, and equipment qualification services in several key areas. Wood is also the projects sole supplier for independent verification of ultrasound inspections on safety critical components.
