Amec Foster Wheeler and Tecnatom announce today the signing of a collaboration agreement, under which the two companies will work together to create an enhanced offering for customers in the nuclear industry. The agreement covers equipment and materials qualification, non-destructive testing, remote handling, and general training services.
Greg Willetts, Vice President for Consultancy at Amec Foster Wheeler Clean Energy Europe, said: “It’s quite common in the nuclear industry for companies to form alliances to bid for discrete projects.

“As well as considerable experience of deploying engineering solutions at power plants, our combined expertise covers all major reactor technologies and advanced research, including fusion.”
Francisco Javier Guerra, Chief Executive Officer of Tecnatom, said: “This agreement strengthens the position of both companies in the international arena, allowing us to offer advanced solutions which are tailored to clients’ needs and enhanced by our combined experience and global reach. The nuclear market demands integrated solutions to improve safety and efficiency and the agreement we have signed will enable us to create value to our clients’ facilities.”
