Supacat strengthens nuclear supply chain

10 December 2014

UK-based engineering firm Supacat Group has acquired Blackhill Engineering Services Ltd, a Devon-based specialist in the fabrication of heavy components.

Supacat says that the new capability will strengthen the regional supply chain in the nuclear and renewables sectors.

Blackhill adds heavy engineering to Supacat's existing light to medium engineering. It brings a 60-ton lifting capability, a rare resource in the region, and an additional 28,000 sq ft of workshop space.

"The acquisition of Blackhill positions Supacat to collaborate on significantly larger renewable energy, nuclear and marine projects in the South West", said Nick Ames, managing director of Supacat Group.

EDF Energy is planning to build an EPR at Hinkley Point C in Somerset - the UK's first nuclear power plant in 20 years.
