It will supply programmable digital control technologies over the course of a 10-year project, covering system and equipment design, manufacture and assembly, as well as obsolescence management and maintenance support.

The firm says it aims to help the site and its supply chain to deliver safe, sustainable and cost-effective solutions, using its experience from the nuclear, automotive and oil and gas sectors.
