$66m contract

Wood hails Amec merger after securing nuclear deal

SellafieldEnergy services firm Wood hailed its merger with Amec Foster Wheeler as the big factor in securing a $66m nuclear power deal.

Aberdeen-based Wood has won a contract to supply programmable digital control technologies to the Sellafield nuclear site in Cumbria, UK.

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Specialist Technical Solutions, said: “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.”

The 10-year framework covers all stages of system design, manufacture and assembly of equipment, obsolescence management and maintenance support to project work and decommissioning carried out by Sellafield.

The contract will help Sellafield and its wider supply chain to deliver safe, sustainable and cost-effective solutions to full lifecycle controls integration supply at the site.

It was secured by a joint approach from nuclear and automation and controls specialists within Wood.
