UK: Balfour Beatty Kilpatrick and EJ Parker Technical Services have been appointed to meet HVAC needs at the Sellafield nuclear site in a deal worth up to £ 250million.
HVAC is used in all installations to regulate temperature and humidity at the Sellafield site. Traditionally at Sellafield, HVAC procurement is done on a project-by-project basis.
Through its Multi-Project Procurement (MPP) approach, program and project partners seek to work with specialist partners throughout the life of the program for greater gains and efficiency.
The MPP approach is designed to encourage long-term collaboration along the supply chain, improve project delivery and pave the way for greater economic and social impact in the West Cumbria region.
The HVAC area of application relates to the design (if applicable), supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the HVAC system. The framework agreement has a term of 18 years and will see both partners supporting the program and the project partners throughout its lifespan, with an estimated value of between £ 150m and £ 250m. There are five-year review points to ensure continued alignment between program and project partners and selected supply chain partners.
Delighted to have been named as one of the first key delivery partners, EJ Parker’s General Manager of Technical Services, Stuart Driscoll, said: “Our team has a broad and complex HVAC experience and our values. of people, security and service are a good alignment for this opportunity. “
“Our in-depth knowledge and expertise, combined with our sustainable and innovative delivery approach, will enable us to safely and successfully deliver the required HVAC work to Sellafield,” said Mark Bullock, Managing Director of Balfour Beatty, UK Construction Services.
