Wood wins key strategic role on Hinkley Point C project

Wood  has secured a new contract to provide a construction design management advisor service for the Hinkley Point C new build nuclear power station project in the  UK.


This gives Wood a key strategic role in the project’s Technical Management and Acceptance team, which is responsible for implementing construction regulations  and managing design risk assessments.


Effective immediately, the contract with station developers EDF Energy will see Wood  engineers working to help mitigate design risks and prepare for site  implementation, achieving safety through design, better value for money and  greater efficiency.


Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood’s Specialist Technical Solutions business, said: “We are  looking forward to working with EDF Energy on another aspect of this project  which is so vital to the UK’s future energy security. Our nuclear business has  played a key role in every UK nuclear new build and this contract supports our  strategy to increase our involvement at Hinkley Point C, where we already  provide safety case and engineering support, equipment qualification services  in several key areas, and are sole suppliers for independent verification of  ultrasound inspections on safety critical components.”
