Energy service giant Wood will provide technical assistance as part of a project to construct a new nuclear power station in the UK. The Aberdeen-headquartered company has inked framework agreement with General Nuclear System Limited (GNS), a joint venture between China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) and EDF Energy. The Office for Nuclear Regulation and the Environment Agency are currently conducting a generic design assessment (GDA) of the UKHPR1000 reactor proposed for Bradwell in Essex. Wood began working with CGN nearly four years ago and has helped to produce a number of key documents for submission to UK regulators in relation to Bradwell. Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood’s specialist technical solutions business, said: “This agreement advances our strategy to secure a key position in every UK nuclear new build. It also cements our role as a key partner in delivering the GDA for the UK HPR1000 reactor.
