Amec Foster Wheeler has won a continuation of a contract to provide environmental support to NuGeneration Limited for a proposed nuclear power station in Cumbria.

The site will be the largest nuclear build project currently proposed in the UK, delivering up to 3.8GW gross capacity on completion.

The company will undertake modelling and assessment work which will enable NuGen to submit an environmental impact assessment in support of a Development Consent Order application and Environmental Permit applications in 2017.

Rob Brown, managing director of Amec Foster Wheeler’s Environment and Infrastructure business in Europe, said:”Amec Foster Wheeler is the leading provider of environmental support to Moorside, this nationally significant infrastructure project.

“We are delighted to be developing a long-term partnership with NuGen, providing quality, time-critical environmental deliverables, and enhancing our position as a leading player in the UK nuclear new build programme.”

Paula Madill, NuGen’s Head of Environment welcomed the ongoing support for environmental impact assessments, and said:

“The NuGen and Amec Foster Wheeler partnership has worked successfully over a number of years and NuGen is pleased to continue this partnership as the environmental impact assessment and operation permits are prepared ahead of delivery in early 2017.”
