DALLAS, May 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Jacobs (NYSE:J) has signed a partnership agreement with NNB Generation Company (HPC) Ltd (NNB Genco), which is building the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in Somerset, U.K.
The agreement outlines that Jacobs will remain a strategic partner on the $30 billion project until the station is commissioned and confirms Jacobs’ status as a preferred supplier in agreed areas of scope and support.
It is the first time that NNB Genco, majority owned by Électricité de France (EDF.PA), has signed a partnership agreement with a professional services provider and it paves the way for similar agreements for HPC and its wider supply chain.
«This agreement enables us to broaden the services we offer and to invest in our teams so that we can deliver greater value while helping to create a more connected, sustainable world,» said Jacobs Critical Mission Solutions International Senior Vice President Clive White. «This project is critical for the U.K. to meet its net-zero carbon commitments.»
Jacobs has been closely involved with the Hinkley Point C project since the outset, and will continue supporting licensing and permitting applications to U.K. regulators and acting as delivery partner for program, project and construction management services on the earthworks, main civil works, marine works and heat sink systems. Jacobs also provides a broad range of specialist engineering and technical services, including equipment qualification for IT and telecommunications systems, HVAC dampers, sensors, thermocouples, polar crane, and smart devices and their associated software. Jacobs’ Inspection Validation Centre in Warrington, U.K. is the project’s sole supplier of independent assessment and assurance for all aspects of non-destructive testing inspection qualification.
