Amec Foster Wheeler awarded three-year nuclear services contract for UK Ministry of Defence

Amec Foster Wheeler announces today the award of a contract by the UK Ministry of Defence’s (MOD) Defence Nuclear Safety Regulator (DNSR) to supply independent regulatory services across the entire spectrum of their activities. DNSR is part of the MOD’s Defence Safety Authority and is responsible for the regulation of the Defence Nuclear Programme.

The value of the three-year contract, which has an option to extend for a further four years, has not been announced, but it renews Amec Foster Wheeler’s support to DNSR which goes back more than 20 years.

Under the contract, the service will be delivered from an independent specialist team within Amec Foster Wheeler and includes development of regulatory policy and guidance, training and assurance, safety case assessment and regulatory inspection.

This contract maintains Amec Foster Wheeler’s position as the largest provider of independent regulatory support services to the UK defence regulator and also provides them with access to our unique capabilities and the vast resource pool across all our technical areas.
