Jacobs nuclear plants

Jacobs has been awarded a project management resources framework contract with EDF Nuclear Operations in the UK valued more than £42 million.

EDF Nuclear Operations is the licensee of eight nuclear power stations which account for approximately 16% of the UK’s electricity output.

Under the two-year agreement, Jacobs will support operations at four advanced gas-cooled reactor (AGR) stations, the transition from generation to defueling at another three AGR stations and the operation and life extension program for the Sizewell B pressurised water reactor.

Jacobs senior vice president Karen Wiemelt said: “We will assist EDF to maximise generation from these vital national assets for the remainder of their operating lives and to support energy security and the target of achieving net-zero carbon by 2050. Simultaneously, we will assist the transition toward defueling and decommissioning at the stations which have ceased generating.”

Now in its ninth year, the existing project management resources framework supports work for more than 200 project management, project engineering specialists and site team supervisors. The new framework is being contracted to a single source in recognition of performance over previous years.
