Sweett Group is pleased to announce that it has secured a
hat-trick of energy sector appointments in the UK.
The three appointments, with Babcock International Group,
Dounreay Site Restoration Limited and NNB Generation
Company (part of EDF Energy) are the most recent
significant frameworks that the Group has secured in the UK
energy infrastructure market.
The Group's appointment with Babcock International group is
to provide quantity surveying and commercial services on
the engineering firm's UK nuclear decommissioning projects,
including major works at Sellafield and Berkeley as part of
a three-year framework.
Working with Dounreay Site Restoration Limited over a
four-year period, Sweett Group will provide cost estimating
services, predominantly from its offices in Edinburgh and
Glasgow, on the decommissioning of the site which formerly
housed the UK's centre of fast reactor research and
In the nuclear new-build field, the Group has been
appointed by EDF Energy to provide commercial support
services as part of a two and a half-year framework for the
construction of a proposed new nuclear power station at
Hinkley Point C, one of eight locations in the UK
identified by the Government as being potentially suitable
for a new nuclear power station.
Nigel Adcock, Sweett Group's Global Head of Energy, said:
"We are very proud to be a part of three such prestigious
frameworks. The breadth of our expertise is reflected
in the wide range of projects we are now involved in,
including nuclear new-build, decommissioning and
restoration, which would not be possible if it was not for
our regional presence across the UK."
Dean Webster, Sweett Group's Chief Executive Officer, said:
"Investing in growth sectors such as energy infrastructure
is one of the key components of our strategy to diversify
our UK business. Our UK order book has continued to
develop positively since the start of the financial year, a
clear sign that we are winning greater market share in an
increasingly competitive market.
