Under the Technical Support Alliance 3 (TSA3) agreement, Amec Foster Wheeler will continue its operational support for the EDF’s UK nuclear plants, which began more than 50 years ago with predecessor organisations.
The new five-year agreement, with an option to extend for a further five years, follows Amec Foster Wheeler's partnership with EDF Energy under two similar frameworks, TSA1 and TSA2. TSA3 will play a key role in station upgrades and enhancements, compliance-related activities, and fleet-critical projects.
Amec Foster Wheeler expects the contract to generate annual revenues of between £25m and £30m.
Stuart Crooks, EDF Energy's managing director 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."
Clive White, president of Amec Foster Wheeler's clean energy business, said: "Amec Foster Wheeler's deep technical knowledge and strong track record in project delivery are crucial to our continued support for EDF Energy's UK stations, which are producing more electricity than at any time since 2003.”
