Rolls-Royce wins boiler work at Dungeness B

22 January 2015

Rolls-Royce has been awarded a contract by EDF Energy to carry out boiler modification work at Dungeness B Power Station in the UK, to support proposed plant lifetime extension to 2028.

The scope of work covers design, supply of parts, installation oversight and commissioning of a variety of additional diverse safety-related electrical control and instrumentation modifications to the boilers. Work is due to be completed during the station's planned outages in 2017 and 2018, says Rolls-Royce.

"We're very pleased to be supporting EDF Energy on this important project. Our combined technical and engineering expertise has enabled us to provide our customer with an innovative solution that will help secure a lifetime extension for Dungeness B. Our focus now is on the highest standards of quality and delivery," commented Jonathan Brown, president - new build & nuclear projects, Rolls-Royce.

Dungeness B comprises two advanced gas-cooled reactors, with a combined capacity of 1050MW. The units started up in 1983. EDF Energy says its decision to extend the life has been made possible by a £150 million investment programme.
