7 June 2017

An alliance of four companies led by UK-based Amec Foster Wheeler has been set up to provide equipment qualification and materials qualification services for nuclear sites in the UK.

The EQ Services Alliance (EQSA) includes Element Materials Technology (UK), Tecnatom (Spain) and TUV Rheinland (Germany). EQSA’s services will include design support, materials selection, operating experience and desktop/physical analysis as well as ageing and thermodynamic accident conditions/design basis event testing, CE marking testing and certification, seismic testing, accelerated ageing tests on materials and equipment, and testing for corrosion and mechanical resistance.

Amec Foster Wheeler Clean Energy business consultancy vice president Greg Willetts said: “EQSA is dedicated to ensuring that the new build supply chain and existing operators can correctly qualify safety critical components right first time in order to meet UK regulatory expectations while helping to avoid delays and unforeseen costs as the project develops.”
