Wood, Amec Win $66m Sellafield Contract


Engineering giant Wood plc said it won a contract to supply “programmable digital control technologies” to the Sellafield nuclear site in Cumbria.

Wood said the 10-year framework, worth $66 million, covers “all stages of system design, manufacture and assembly of equipment, obsolescence management and maintenance support to project work and decommissioning carried out by Sellafield Ltd.”

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Specialist Technical Solutions, said: “Securing this important framework is proof of the rationale for acquiring Amec Foster Wheeler 12 months ago and a good revenue synergy. 

“We could not have won this contract as separate businesses.

“Our aim is to provide Sellafield Ltd with long-term supply chain capability and capacity, implementing standardised solutions, building innovation into design and delivery, managing obsolescence, and reducing lifecycle costs.”
