Framatome to provide engineering services to EDF
12 June 2020
Framatome signed a framework agreement with EDF in the United Kingdom (U.K.) to provide engineering services to support ongoing nuclear power station operations. Framatome will provide dedicated, in-house nuclear engineering services to support the continued operation of eight nuclear stations across the country. These stations include 14 advanced gas reactors and one pressurized water reactor.
Framatome will provide in-house services for the full range of engineering responsibilities focused on design, analysis, calculations, documentation, and modifications. This will include support related to regulations and licensing; systems, civil specialty, electrical, mechanical, safety and risk-informed engineering; component analysis and fracture mechanics; and instrumentation and control.
Framatome’s in-house, resident engineer will engage closely with the customer in assessing solutions for plant optimizations and improvements. The engineer will be based at EDF in the U.K. offices in Barnwood.
