WOOD has been enlisted to help develop plans for a new nuclear power station in the UK which will help cement the company’s position in what it sees as a good growth market. The Aberdeen-based engineering giant will provide technical assistance for China General Nuclear Power Corporation and EDF Energy as they prepare for a preliminary regulatory assessment of the reactor proposed for Bradwell in Essex. The value of the framework agreement secured by Wood will not be known until workloads are confirmed.
