Express Reinforcements Ltd (ERL) has been selected as the preferred bidder for the £100M contract to supply reinforcing steel for the proposed Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in Somerset, UK.
The scope of the contract will include the provision of 200,000t of steel to main civils contractor BYLOR, a joint venture between Bouygues TP and Laing O'Rourke.
The firm will supply rebar from its Neath and Newport manufacturing centres.
Express Reinforcements’ managing director Andy Lodge said: "We are pleased to be the preferred supplier of reinforcing steel to this contract through BYLOR.
"It cements long-term relationships and puts Express at the forefront of reinforcing steel supply, having already been a major supplier to other key infrastructure projects such as Crossrail and Heathrow Terminal 5.
"It shows that our proven track record in delivering on these significant projects is highly valued and local, responsibly-sourced steel to the highest quality standards (Eco-Reinforcement/BES 6001) is fundamental to all involved on this construction."
