The partnership also has the opportunity for a future joint apprenticeship and graduate training scheme between the two companies.

Iain Miller, chief executive of Doosan Babcock said: “Doosan Babcock has a long standing and continuing relationship with British Energy, having worked on station maintenance support activities, plant outages, and a wide range of projects across all of its sites. However, this contract builds on this approach and moves towards a more strategic, coordinated and long-term relationship in support of operational reliability and plant life extension.”
