London, United Kingdom, (17 June 2014) "- AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has been awarded a strategic framework contract by the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) to provide services for their nuclear new build programme in the United Arab Emirates.

These include a range of strategic planning services right through to specific niche nuclear engineering skills.

ENEC will build a total of four nuclear energy plants by 2020, pending regulatory approvals. Units 1 & 2 are already under construction, with the first plant scheduled to commence commercial operations in 2017.

"Our world-class nuclear consultancy skills, developed through our 60 years of involvement in the nuclear industry, can play a key role in the development of new build programmes, not only in the UAE for ENEC, but also across the Middle East, and this contract will provide us with significant opportunities to further grow our nuclear business."
