Wood has won a contract to provide the UK’s Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) with technical safety advice and support.
The four-year framework covers the ONR’s activities in new build, power generation, decommissioning and defence.
Engineering expert Wood, which employs more than 1,300 people in the North West, has supported the UK nuclear regulator with technical safety advice and assessment work for more than 20 years.
It was selected for its successful track record and the experience and technical excellence of its staff, many of whom are internationally-recognised subject matter experts.
Wood’s nuclear business employs more than 1,300 people in the North West of England, mainly at Knutsford and Birchwood in Cheshire and at Sellafield and Whitehaven in Cumbria.
Globally, Wood operates in more than 60 countries, employing around 60,000 people, with revenues in excess of £7.66bn.
