Amec will design, install and commission the filtration and compression facilities and utility equipment at Hill Top Farm facility.
The work will enable EDF Energy to significantly increase its gas reserves, and contribute to the security of the country’s gas supplies.
Engineering is due to start immediately with planned completion in July 2012.
Neil Bruce, executive director of Amec, said: “This is another step towards realising our Vision 2015 strategy to become the leader in engineering and project management services for the natural resources, nuclear, clean energy, water and environmental sectors.”
Mark O’Brien EDF energy’s director, UK Gas Storage, said: “This project will provide valuable capacity at a time when the UK is looking to increase its gas storage capabilities and will support EDF Energy’s gas strategy in helping us to provide secure supplies to our power stations and our customers.”
