DALLAS – Jacobs (NYSE:J) was selected to provide the U.K.’s nuclear regulator, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR), with specialist engineering and technical support services.
The four-year framework covers the ONR’s activities in new build, power generation, decommissioning and defense.
Jacobs has supported the regulator with technical safety advice and assessment for more than 20 years. This new contract award reflects a successful track record and technical experience of the team, many of whom are internationally recognized subject matter specialists.
