Hull engineering group chosen to lead on major nuclear industry project
Spencer Group has been chosen as a delivery partner for a new programme of work in the nuclear industry.
The Hull-based engineering business is set to design and build projects over the next four years for National Nuclear Laboratories (NNL) - a government body that conducts research and provides services across the sector.
The framework will enable Spencer Group to develop further its reputation in the nuclear industry and delivery of engineering projects.
Spencer Group’s nuclear lead, Rob Marshall, said: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to work with NNL and to demonstrate our expertise and proven experience within the nuclear industry, which is one of the most challenging sectors for any business to work in.”
Spencer Group delivers engineering projects and has worked on several projects in the energy sector, including leading the development of the £200m Energy Works plant in Hull, and delivering a £68m contract to design and build a biomass handling facility at the Port of Tyne.
In the nuclear sector, Spencer Group has been involved in removing nuclear waste at the former Chapelcross power station in Dumfries and Galloway, south west Scotland, and is currently undertaking works at Hinkley Point A site in Somerset.
Under the new partnership with NNL, Spencer Group will design, build and maintain “experimental rigs” - a range of equipment allowing NNL to develop and test, in a controlled environment, new and emerging technological solutions for nuclear facilities.
NNL works with clients across the industry to support the operation of nuclear plants, advise on waste management and conduct nuclear research.
Mick Renshaw, Spencer Group’s engineering director, added: “We have expertise in complex multi-disciplinary engineering work which we are excited to share with NNL.
“We’re working with a client that is looking beyond the established supply chain, so we’ll be offering a fresh perspective and evolving alongside NNL throughout the framework. Our aim is to be NNL’s partner of choice.”
