Technical consulting firm Jacobs has been awarded a £10 million contract to assist design and renovation initiatives for the National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) at a few of their UK branches.
The project will involve the design, construction, and renovation of the Windscale and Central Laboratories in Sellafield, Preston based operations, and a Workington test-rig centre.
The initiative will start as a one-year project, but there are opportunities for up to three further years of changes.
Karen Wiemelt, SVP of Security & Technology at Jacobs, explained that “This work will help ensure that the U.K.’s advanced nuclear research and development capability remains world-class. We will draw on knowledge of nuclear engineering design and experience of operating laboratories to test rigs in Warrington, U.K.”
David Beacham, Chief Customer Officer, highlighted the essential need for Jacobs Energy to keep investing in its facilities to align with the demands of stakeholders and the broader industry objectives. “Our people and facilities are our most important assets, so this project will continue to protect and create highly skilled jobs in the northwest of England.”
