As well as continuing to supply Rotork actuators, spares and servicing to its fleet, Exeeco will be supporting British Energy’s review of obsolescence in valve actuation and assisting with strategies in this area in a bid to help the company achieve plant life extensions at its stations.

Jon Vincent, British Energy supply chain specialist, explained: ‘This contract was awarded to Exeeco to benefit the technological implementation of our long term plans. The combination of Rotork products and the expertise of Exeeco will be of significant future benefit to British Energy.

‘It is our intention to enhance control and automation at many of our sites, including Sizewell B, which currently has an accounting life until 2035. All of our stations undergo regular, stringent outage overhauls and plant upgrades to maintain modern and reliable processes and controls.

‘Reliable valve actuation is an important element to the success of our plans. Exeeco has demonstrated unrivalled actuation and automation expertise which, combined with the quality and reliability of Rotork products, will serve British Energy well in our mission.’

Exeeco sales director Ian Elliott adds: ‘We have served British Energy for over 30 years, providing actuator overhauls, outage services and the design, manufacture and installation of automated control and actuation systems. We are proud that British Energy has extended this significant contract, adding strength to our partnering agreement and commitment to key accounts.’

For the past three years Exeeco has also been busy providing permanent actuator training facilities at British Energy sites, involving the design and installation of training rigs at Hartlepool, Torness, Heysham, Hinkley Point B and Dungeness B.
