Hull-based engineering business, Spencer Group, has been chosen as a delivery partner for a major new programme of work in the nuclear industry.
The business is set to design and build projects over the next four years for National Nuclear Laboratories (NNL) – a Government body that conducts research and provides services across the sector.
The framework will enable Spencer Group to develop further its reputation in the nuclear industry and proven track record of delivering complex engineering projects.
Under the new partnership with NNL, Spencer Group will design, build and maintain “experimental rigs” – a range of equipment that allows NNL to develop and test, in a controlled environment, new and emerging technological solutions for nuclear facilities around the UK.
The scope of works will include a range of complex engineering challenges, such as the design and construction of processing plants, pressure vessels, mechanical handling equipment and specialist machinery.
NNL works with clients across the industry to support the operation of nuclear plants, advise on waste management and conduct nuclear research.
Mick Renshaw, Spencer Group Engineering Director, said: “We have extensive expertise in complex multi-disciplinary engineering work which we are excited to share with NNL.
“We’re working with a client that is looking beyond the established supply chain, so we’ll be offering a fresh perspective and evolving alongside NNL throughout the framework. Our aim is to be NNL’s partner of choice.”
