Jacobs backs UK campaign for clean energy with power station life extension scheme
Phase 1 of the program includes scoping work and cost-benefit analysis to support the business case before a final investment decision is made in 2024. EDF estimates the total value of this phase at $14 million (₤10 million).
Sizewell B is the only pressurized water reactor and the most modern and efficient station in the UK’s civilian nuclear fleet. UK nuclear power stations have generated more than 2,000 terawatt hours of carbon-free electricity since 1976 – enough to power every home in the UK for more than 18 years – and their generation has avoided the emission of 700 million tons of CO₂.
“This collaboration, between Jacobs, General Electric, Westinghouse and EDF, brings together the original builder/architect engineering organizations from the design and construction of Sizewell B in the 1990s,” said Jacobs Energy Security & Technology Senior Vice President. Karen Wiemelt. “Jacobs has worked at the station since the initial construction and together with our partners we bring to the LTO program intrinsic knowledge and experience of extending plant life which will help safeguard the future of a vital part of the UK’s clean energy infrastructure.”
“Sizewell B Power Station is an important national asset that helps provide clean and independent energy supplies. EDF is actively studying a 20-year life extension opportunity to bring production to 2055. A final investment decision is expected by 2024,” said EDF’s nuclear director. Officer Paul Morton.
