Babcock & Wilcox UK ordered to change its name

14 Jun 16 Energy contractor Babcock & Wilcox UK has been ordered to change its name the UK government’s Company Names Tribunal after a petition by Babcock International Group.

It was an easy decision for the tribunal as Babcock & Wilcox UK lodged no defence of its position.

It now has one month to adopt a new name or face having one given to it.

Babcock & Wilcox UK must also pay £800 to Babcock International Group in compensation for the costs it has incurred.

Babcock & Wilcox UK Ltd was registered as a company in November 2015 by Babcock & Wilcox's Danish subsidiary Babcock & Wilcox Vølund, which is active in the UK building biomass and waste-to-energy plants. The company was previously registered at Companies House as BWV UK Energy Ltd.

Although Babcock International Group has its roots in the historic US boiler maker Babcock & Wilcox, it is today a separate company.
