Two contractors have announced business for UK nuclear utility EDF Energy.
Jacobs Engineering Group has announced that its contract to provide project services to EDF Energy for its eight nuclear power station sites in the United Kingdom has been extended.
Company officials did not disclose the contract value, but noted that the contract is extended by 12 months with an option for a further 12 months.
Jacobs is providing a range of project services to support EDF Energy's program of maintenance and life extension projects at the stations.
Also, engineering consultancy Frazer-Nash has announced it has been working in strategic partnership with EDF Energy to support component life assessment (CLA) work at its nuclear stations.
Working in partnership with EDF Energy, Frazer-Nash will support the activities of their Structural Integrity Branch (SIB). The branch has overall responsibility for carrying out structural assessments to establish the safety of certain safety related components. Component life assessment involves undertaking complex structural and materials analysis including high temperature creep-fatigue assessments.
