AMEC named preferred bidder as Owners Engineer for nuclear new build contract Poland


London, United Kingdom, (14 July 2014) "- AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, today announces its appointment by PGE EJ1, a subsidiary of Polish state-controlled Polska Grupa Energetyczna SA, as preferred bidder to support the development of Poland's first nuclear power plant over the next 10 years.

The contract, which will be formally confirmed in the next few weeks, will be worth £39 million to AMEC for the required scope of work initially, rising to around £255m if all optional work is undertaken over the 10 years.

Two locations, Choczewo and Zarnowiec, both close to the Baltic coast, have been shortlisted. The Polish government wants the first plant, capable of producing approximately 3,000 megawatts of electricity, to be operational by 2024.

"This is a major step forward in AMEC's strategy to grow our nuclear engineering business internationally. We are very proud that AMEC's first contract in Poland will help deliver the country's first nuclear power plant." said Clive White, President of AMEC's Clean Energy Europe business.

"AMEC has more than 60 years experience in the nuclear sector and this contract will allow us to bring all our skills to be at the forefront of developing Poland's nuclear industry while also helping to establish new industrial and engineering capability in the country."

Specific services such as licensing and permitting support, supply chain and contract management and Health and Safety management will be provided by AMEC. Clive added: "A big part of our approach is helping our client develop a strong nuclear capability by transferring skills and knowledge from our people to theirs through the life of the contract."

AMEC will employ three companies as its sub-contractors, WYG International Sp z o.o., TÜV Rheinland and AT Kearney Sp z o.o.
