Jacobs was awarded a two-year extension to its Stations Services Agreement (SSA) with EDF Nuclear Generation (EDF), operator of the U.K.'s nuclear power plants. Jacobs' scope includes supporting the safe operation and maintenance of the advanced gas-cooled reactor (AGR) stations which account for about 17% of the country's electricity output.

Jacobs will act as the prime contractor to deliver flagship projects, such as the overhaul of primary plant heating and ventilation systems. The SSA team also has an established reputation for troubleshooting and work delivery on many complex plant systems. EDF estimates the contract value of the April 2022 – March 2024 extension at more than $3 million.

"The agreement to extend was made following an exceptional year of safe maintenance and delivery from Jacobs, reflecting EDF's confidence in our record of successful performance on of this multiyear framework," said Jacobs Energy, Security & Technology Senior Vice President Karen Wiemelt. "We will assist EDF in maximizing emission-free generation from these vital national assets for the remainder of their operating lives, supporting the transition to a net-zero economy, and follow-on transition toward defueling and decommissioning."

Now in its fourth year, the SSA contract supports work for Jacobs' technical specialists embedded at power stations with the client's teams. "From my perspective, the Jacobs SSA team are great to work with. There is a good level of reach-back through the wider organization, which drives continuous improvement on site, and they have a strong leadership team through the Site General Manager," said EDF Heysham 2 Power Station Supply Chain Contract Manager Tom Oulton.
