Studsvik wins contract to perform materials testing

Studsvik has signed a contract with EDF Energy Nuclear Generation to carry out materials testing on irradiated fuel and fuel components.

The seven-year contract, worth SEK13.5m (£1.25m) per year, involves materials testing on irradiated fuel and fuel components from AGR reactors.

The contract may be extended for a further 10 years.

The fuel and materials tests will be carried out at Studsvik’s facilities and are made in support of the safety cases and operation of EDF’s UK AGR reactors.
