Servelec project win with EDF Energy

Servelec Controls has been awarded a contract to provide a new controls system for EDF Energy’s West Burton Power Station, which follows on from successful projects at the site earlier in the year.

The Unit 2 Drains Receiver Steam Trap Installation will control new bypass valves that are fitted to the steam traps in both the intermediate pressure and high pressure drains.  West Burton is a 2,000MW power station near Gainsborough that has been producing electricity for over 45 years.

The award of this contract follows on from the installation and commission of the Sootblower control systems at Cottam Power Station and further strengthens Servelec Controls’ relationship with EDF Energy. Servelec has worked with the energy giant throughout the country on its traditional power sites at Cottam and West Burton and its nuclear sites including Torness, Hartlepool and Heysham.

Managing Director Alex Moore commented:

“We are delighted to once again be working with EDF Energy, after some some excellent feedback from projects completed at other EDF sites this year. Staff from our power team are already working on the project and expect to be completed by February.”

The project win continues a successful year in the power industry for Servelec with the awarding of projects with Drax and National Grid.
