Amec Foster Wheeler and CNECC have committed themselves to work together to develop opportunities in nuclear power development, construction, operation and decommissioning projects globally.

The agreement was signed by Armand Kirk, Strategic Development Director, Amec Foster Wheeler Clean Energy, and Deng Xiaoliang, Director General of CNECC.

Amec Foster Wheeler announces today that it has signed a wide-ranging agreement with nuclear power plant constructor China Nuclear Engineering & Construction (Group) Corporation (CNEC).

The two companies have confirmed a memorandum of understanding covering potential collaboration in the nuclear industry. It is the first time CNEC has agreed to collaborate with a global engineering consultancy on the deployment of high-temperature reactors in the UK and internationally.

The agreement was signed in Beijing as part of a nuclear industry trade mission organised by UK Trade & Investment and the China-Britain Business Council.

Amec Foster Wheeler and CNEC have committed themselves to work together to develop opportunities in nuclear power development, construction, operation and decommissioning projects globally.

They will also identify specialist knowledge that each can contribute towards reactor outage management, operation, ageing management, lifetime extension and upgrading of existing units. The scope of the agreement also covers training, waste management and decommissioning.

It is expected that CNEC will make use of Amec Foster Wheeler’s new High-Temperature Facility in the UK, which will carry out research and testing on materials capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 1,000 degrees centigrade.
