Amec, in partnership with technology provider ALSTOM, will fit technology to reduce sulphur emissions from the power station, situated near Barry.
An Amec-led consortium has won a £108m contract for work to fit environmental technology at the Aberthaw coal-fired power station in South Wales.
Amec, in partnership with technology provider ALSTOM, will fit technology to reduce sulphur emissions from the power station, situated near Barry. The Amec share of the deal is worth approximately £64m.
AMEC will be responsible for overall project management of on-site engineering and construction, detailed civil and structural design together with engineering design of the off-site utilities plant. The project is driven by the requirements of new European environmental regulations due to come into force in 2008. It involves fitting air pollution control technology that will improve Aberthaw's environmental performance, safeguard the station's future and provide a boost to the local economy.
Steve Lee, managing director of AMEC’s industrial business, said: "This is an important opportunity for AMEC and forms part of our overall strategy of providing specialist services across the energy spectrum from oil and gas through nuclear to renewables."
