Cape awarded five year EDF contract extension

Cape plc has been awarded an extension to its contract with EDF Energy for the supply of access, insulation and associated services in support of EDF Energy’s fleet of eight nuclear power stations in the UK.

By K. Steiner-Dicks

EDF Energy produces around one fifth of the nation's power supply from eight nuclear power stations, two coal fired power stations, a combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power station and a number of wind farms.

This substantial contract, which extends Cape's long standing relationship with EDF Energy, encompasses the supply of specialist access and thermal insulation services for an additional five years to 2021 in support of the fleet's maintenance, projects and statutory outage programmes, where the requirement for safety, reliability and innovation is paramount.
