The company will undertake modeling and assessment work so NuGen can submit an environmental impact assessment in support of a Development Consent Order application and environmental permit applications in 2017. This builds on the company’s successful delivery of the initial phases of the environmental impact assessment program, site characterization, two major consultation stages and initial work on the site’s environmental permits.
Amec Foster Wheeler’s environmental and radiological experts utilize experience in areas such as hydrology, ecology, hydrogeology, radiological assessment, air quality and noise and vibration. The team has helped assess impacts of proposed nuclear builds at Hinkley Point, Sizewell, Wylfa and Moorside.
“The NuGen and Amec Foster Wheeler partnership has worked successfully over a number of years and NuGen is pleased to continue this partnership as the environmental impact assessment and operation permits are prepared ahead of delivery in early 2017,” said Paula Madill, NuGen’s Head of Environment.
