Energy services giant Wood has won a £52.2m contract for work on the Sellafield nuclear site in Cumbria.
The 10-year deal will see the Aberdeen headquartered firm design, manufacture and supply digital control technologies to the facility.
Wood said the work was secured thanks to specialists within the firm with knowledge of automation technology from the oil and gas and nuclear sectors.
The firm added it would not have won the contract without having acquired Amec Foster Wheeler last year in a £2.2bn deal which increased its capabilities in the nuclear industry.
CEO of Wood Specialist Solutions, Bob MacDonald, said: “We are looking forward to working with Sellafield Ltd and demonstrating the strength and depth of controls integration expertise across the whole of Wood, bringing together our nuclear expertise with our automation and controls capability.
“Securing this important framework is proof of the rationale for acquiring Amec Foster Wheeler 12 months ago and a good revenue synergy. We could not have won this contract as separate businesses.
“Our aim is to provide Sellafield Ltd with long-term supply chain capability and capacity, implementing standardised solutions, building innovation into design and delivery, managing obsolescence, and reducing lifecycle costs.”
Sellafield stores almost all of the UK’s nuclear waste and is owned by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
