EDF expands with AMEC

24 August 2010

EDF Energy has extended a gas storage facility in Cheshire, UK, turning to AMEC for £60 million (€73 million) of filtration and compression facilities, after-cooling de-hydration, metering and utility equipment.

The contract, at the Hill Top Farm facility at Warmingham, extends AMEC's long history with Hill Top as the existing two facilities at the plant were originally designed and engineered by the company. The work will enable EDF Energy to significantly increase its gas reserves.

Engineering will start immediately with planned completion in July 2012, after which AMEC will be well positioned for future asset maintenance work.

Neil Bruce, executive director of AMEC said: "I am delighted that our good and wide-ranging long-term relationship with EDF, combined with our extensive gas storage expertise, has led to this significant award. It is another step towards realising our Vision 2015 strategy to become the leader in engineering and project management services for the natural resources, nuclear, clean energy, water and environmental sectors."

Mark O'Brien EDF Energy's director, UK Gas Storage, said: "We're very pleased to be working with AMEC on this latest facility at the Hill Top Farm Gas storage facility. AMEC's expertise in gas storage infrastructure together with their experience of the existing facilities at Hill Top makes them best placed to carry out this work. This project will provide valuable capacity at a time when the UK is looking to increase its gas storage capabilities and will support EDF Energy's gas strategy in helping us to provide secure supplies to our power stations and our customers."
