Hinkley Point C announce Technical Support Alliance
24 October 2019
The Hinkley Point C Project has announced the launch of a new multi-million pound technical and engineering services agreement (The HTSA) which comprises existing Tier 1 services suppliers Atkins, Frazer-Nash Consultancy and Wood plc.
It will harness the technical expertise offered by three of the leading professional services providers in the nuclear sector. They will work collaboratively as a single Alliance to ensure the availability of a robust pipeline of skilled resources, whilst leveraging further value and efficiency.
Based upon the long established EDF Energy Nuclear Generation Technical Support Alliance, in operation for more than ten years, all alliance members will provide the Hinkley Point C Project with full life cycle services across all disciplines. The companies will work collaboratively with the HPC project in order to provide the most appropriate expertise to specific tasks.
The agreement will last for five years with an optional five-year extension and seeks to draw upon the vast array of skillsets, experiences and operational experience gained from key suppliers in their work across both nuclear new build and the existing fleet of nuclear power plants in the UK.
Mark Hartley, Technical Director for HPC said “I’m delighted that we are able to announce the launch of the HTSA. We look forward to working together collaboratively, as a single Alliance, to help deliver Hinkley Point C on time and on budget. Having worked closely with Atkins, Frazer-Nash, and Wood on this project since its inception, the HTSA further enhances the existing relationships between the companies for the benefit of all involved”.
