AUMA - British Energy extends actuator agreement

Having successfully fulfilled a three year framework agreement supplying actuators to British-Energy (now part of EDF Energy) AUMA’s contract has been extended by a further three years. A track record supplying Hinkley, Hunterston and Dungeness supported British Energy’s selection of AUMA electric actuators.

AUMA products have been adopted to support valve technology at British Energy’s plants. Additionally, as part of the extended agreement, AUMA will support the energy supplier’s obsolescence strategy replacing first generation actuators with its modular actuators.

Commenting, Jonathan Vincent from British Energy’s Supply Chain division said:

“AUMA’s modular approach to actuator design has been a key factor in British Energy’s decision to extend the framework agreement. There are particular advantages with regard to our obsolescence programme as old equipment can be replaced without impact on the plants’ existing control system infrastructure.”

AUMA’s British division, which is part of an international group of companies, will continue to supply multi/quarter turn actuators and gearboxes. The company will also provide service and training support.
