EDF Energy has awarded a contract for its nuclear power stations in the UK.

Engineering firm Jacobs will provide project management resources to EDF’s eight nuclear power stations and two technical centres in the UK.

Company officials did not disclose the contract value but noted it is for five years with optional two-year extensions.

The eight power stations have a combined capacity of almost 8.8 million KW.

Jacobs Group Vice President Bob Duff said: “We are delighted to continue supporting EDF Energy on this major programme of nuclear power investment in the UK.

“We look forward to contributing significant expertise, local knowledge and global resource to help deliver safe, robust solutions across these important assets.”
