Spencer Group has strengthened its foothold in the UK’s nuclear industry as it was chosen for a major four-year engineering programme. The Hull-based civil engineering firm is set to design and build projects for National Nuclear Laboratories (NNL) – a government body which conducts research across the sector. Under the new partnership with NNL, Spencer Group will design, build and maintain “experimental rigs” – a range of equipment that allows NNL to develop and test, in a controlled environment, new and emerging technological solutions for nuclear facilities around the UK. The scope of works will include a range of complex engineering challenges, such as the design and construction of processing plants, pressure vessels, mechanical handling equipment and specialist machinery. In the nuclear sector, Spencer Group has been involved in removing nuclear waste at the former Chapelcross power station in Dumfries and Galloway, south west Scotland, and is currently undertaking works at Hinkley Point A site in Somerset.
