Amec has been awarded a contract worth over £60m by EDF Energy to extend a gas storage facility in Cheshire.
The contract, at the Hill Top Farm facility at Warmingham, will see Amec design, install and commission the filtration and compression facilities, after-cooling, de-hydration, metering and utility equipment. The work will enable EDF Energy to significantly increase its gas reserves.
Amec will start work on the contract immediately, with planned completion in July 2012, after which the firm said it would be “well positioned for future asset maintenance work”.
Neil Bruce, executive director of Amec, said: “This is another step towards realising our Vision 2015 strategy to become the leader in engineering and project management services for the natural resources, nuclear, clean energy, water and environmental sectors.”
