Carillion agrees nuclear power deal

Carillion has signed a major collaboration agreement with French company Eiffage to deliver nuclear power stations in the UK.

Carillion and Eiffage, who have delivered projects including the Channel Tunnel and Copenhagen Metro, will work together to deliver a fleet of Pressurised Water Reactors to replace the existing fleet of reactors.

Adam Green, managing director of Carillion Infrastructure said: ‘Our complimentary skills, capability and experience makes Carillion Eiffage ideally placed to support clients with their new-build programmes.’

Recent projects by Eiffage include the Millau Viaduct and the LGV Perpignan-Figueras high-speed railway line, due to open in 2009.
