EASL and six other vendors have compliantly tendered for and have been awarded a contract to have a place on the UKAEA Embedded Support Framework.
UK-based engineering consultancy EASL (Engineering Analysis Services Limited) has secured a framework contract from the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) to provide embedded engineering support services. The framework is UKAEA site wide and covers multiple business units including STEP (Spherical Tokamak for Energy Production), the UK’s prototype fusion power plant that will demonstrate the commercial viability of fusion energy.
For over 30 years, EASL has collaborated with key civil nuclear organisations delivering design, analysis and assessment consultancy services to Rolls Royce-Power Engineering, Rolls-Royce Naval Marine, UKAEA, ITER and the Office for Nuclear Regulation, to name a few.
Under the framework agreement, EASL and six other vendors will have the opportunity to compete to supply embedded support for a wide variety of engineering requirements, to various UKAEA facilities. The contract, which was signed in November 2021 has a duration of four years.
Antony Hurst, Managing Director of EASL said:
“EASL’s support to the fusion experiment driven by UKAEA stretches back many years and we are delighted they are utilising our team to consolidate our relationship with the award of this contract.
“The case for supporting new nuclear projects has never been stronger and our priority is to assist the UKAEA to deliver fusion research for low-carbon energy safer, faster and at a lower cost.”
