Rolls-Royce has signed a contract with EDF Energy to provide heat exchangers for nuclear island systems at Hinkley Point C nuclear power station, stepping up its presence in the global nuclear new build supply chain.

Rolls-Royce was selected in 2016 as preferred bidder for the heat exchangers, along with the primary, liquid and gaseous waste treatment systems and ultimate diesel generators.

A team of 80 Rolls-Royce engineers and supply chain specialists are currently working on the projects at its Derby, Barnwood and Warrington bases.

Chris Tierney, Rolls-Royce Executive Vice President – Nuclear, said: “EDF Energy is a major customer of Rolls-Royce across the world and with this contract we remain dedicated to bringing world-class quality and innovation to our customer.

“Our approach as a strategic partner allows us to use Rolls-Royce engineering expertise and supply chain integration experience to bring great value to large infrastructure projects like this and we’re delighted now to become fully involved in this strategically important new power station and to deliver our commitments.”
