A partnership has been announced between Amec and Exelon Nuclear Partners (ENP) to provide consultancy and support services to nuclear power projects around the world.
International engineering and project management company Amec said that it was collaborating with ENP - a division of the US's largest nuclear generator Exelon - to "explore opportunities in new markets across the international energy sector," reports World Nuclear News.
The partnership, focusing on "nuclear new build and existing reactor marketplaces," will provide engineering, consultancy, project management and operations support services.
Amec's nuclear division offers a range of nuclear services from site management through to waste management and decommissioning. ENP provides nuclear power operating, performance improvement and new nuclear development services.
Clive White, president for Amec's European clean energy business, said: "This new partnership will combine Amec's wide ranging nuclear skills, such as licensing, engineering consultancy and permitting expertise, with Exelon's unrivalled operational experience."
"It supports our strategy to grow our nuclear capability and will create a formidable entity to target major projects in new and exciting markets such as the Middle East and mainland Europe," he added.
ENP CEO Amir Shahkarami added: "The global opportunities across the sector, from new build through to decommissioning and waste management, are huge."
