Wood secures engineering design contract worth USD1bn

16 May 2019

Wood has secured a new contract worth up to USD1 bn to provide engineering design services to Sellafield Ltd over the next 20 years.

The company has been selected as a Design and Engineering Partner at the UK’s most complex nuclear site as part of the new Programme and Project Partners (PPP) procurement model.

Sellafield Ltd has described PPP as a ‘game changer’ for the supply chain, creating long-term relationships with selected partners, developing closer working practices, and delivering projects faster without compromising safety standards.

Wood will provide the front end design and engineering capability and services required to deliver a portfolio of major projects and site-wide project delivery improvements. A key element of the Design and Engineering Partner’s role will be working with the other lot partners for Integration, Civils Construction and Process Construction to optimize design, constructability, and overall project delivery.

Working with Sellafield Ltd as the fifth partner, the PPP lot partners will deliver multiple capital projects with a combined value of up to USD6 bn across the Sellafield site.
