UK engineering company Costain on 15 March announced a new multi-million pound framework agreement from EDF Energy Nuclear Generation to provide a project controls managed service to portfolios and programmes of work across all of EDF Energy’s eight UK nuclear power plants for an initial three-year term. The Nuclear Generation division of EDF Energy is a new client for Costain.
As part of this work, Costain will develop people capability in core project control skills and provide specialist support to EDF Energy’s Central Technical Organisation to improve project performance and deliver cost efficiencies.
Nigel Curry, Consulting and Advisory Services Director at Costain, said: "Nuclear power is a significant part of the UK's energy mix. It provides consumers across the country with power that is affordable, low carbon and secure. Meeting national needs is the cornerstone of Costain’s strategy and we have broadened our services to ensure we can best support our customers.”
