UK-based construction and infrastructure firm Morgan Sindall is joining forces with two US companies to target nuclear new-build and decommissioning opportunities in the United Kingdom.
An agreement signed last week will see Morgan Sindall work with The S.M. Stoller Corp. and Newport News Nuclear. Both companies are subsidiaries of Huntington Ingalls Industries and have extensive experience in the US nuclear sector.
Stoller specialises in nuclear engineering, radioactive and hazardous waste management and decommissioning, while Newport News Nuclear provides nuclear operations and programme management for the US Department of Energy.
"Our collaboration with Morgan Sindall will allow us to provide capabilities and experience we have developed over decades to significant nuclear projects and services in the UK nuclear market," said Stoller president Nick Lombardo.
Morgan Sindall, which brings design, construction and project management ability within the UK nuclear market, said the long-term agreement demonstrates the company's commitment to significantly expanding its UK nuclear presence.
"We have a clear understanding of the UK's future nuclear requirements and a proven construction and infrastructure capability within this sector," commented Simon Smith, managing director of Utility Services at Morgan Sindall.
"Through our collaboration with Stoller and Newport News Nuclear we are further strengthening our capabilities and experience which will be instrumental in enabling us to provide an enhanced range of new build and decommissioning services to the UK nuclear market," he added.
