Atkins joins EDF's nuclear partnership

Consultant Atkins has this week joined EDF Energy’s Strategic Supply Chain Partnership.

EDF is seeking to extend the life of its advanced gas-cooled reactors (AGR) by an average of seven years to combat the predicted energy gap before the new nuclear reactos come on line.

“Atkins will be bringing its technical and program delivery experience to the full portfolio of work being invested in by EDF Energy in their existing fleet,” said Atkins Nuclear managing director Chris Ball. “In addition to this we will add our consultancy experience in developing and delivering complex supply chain problems.”

Atkins has worked with EDF previously helping to maintain its reactors. It has provided engineering and programme management services working across the graphite core, furl route improvement, periodic safety review and Japanese Emergency Response programmes.
