Power generation

Power generation

We provide market-leading project management, design, construction, installation, testing and commissioning for power generation facilities ranging from nuclear power stations through to gas fired, oil, coal, wind and hydro-power assets.

We can deliver both single and multi-disciplinary projects and can self-deliver engineering and construction work packages through our directly employed, ground engineering and mechanical & electrical engineering skilled workforce. We have the flexibility to work at any level on project, e.g. tier 1, 2 or 3.

Nuclear

We have over 60 years of experience in the nuclear industry working across the sector on new build, decommissioning, fuel cycle and defence projects. Our experience includes large scale civil engineering and delivery of EC&I systems during the last phase of nuclear new build in the UK as well as delivery of over 30 projects at Sellafield since 1979.

Our commitment to safety in this highly regulated environment can be seen at Sellafield where, in 2014, we were recently awarded our 13th RoSPA Gold Medal reflecting over two million hours, over 9 years, of operations delivered accident free.

Renewable energy

The location of renewable energy sources is often a barrier to harvesting their full potential. Through engineering excellence we have delivered access and piling solutions that form a key part of plans to harvest some of the UK’s most remote renewable energy sources.

Our works in this area, often in challenging weather conditions, mean that our workforce is trained to cope with the extremes of UK weather.

In-house expertise

We deliver mechanical and electrical construction for large projects in highly regulated industries such as power, nuclear, petrochemical, infrastructure, defence and pharmaceuticals.

Our work force includes over 1,000 skilled trades people working on sites across the UK. They are supported by discipline engineering, project management, construction management, procurement and logistics functions.

Our major mechanical engineering capability is supported by our off-site manufacturing facilities. This allows us to deliver large, complex, high pressure fabricated piping systems, from design and manufacture through to installation and commissioning.

Our in-house capabilities also include the design and manufacture of electrical switchgear and power distribution substations. Click here for more information.
