FTSE-LISTED engineering firm Costain yesterday said it is on track to meet full-year expectations, following a strong performance in the first half of the year.

The company has won a number of high-profile contracts this year and its forward order book has increased to a new record of £3bn.

Costain has secured a number of deals with Crossrail, one with French energy firm EDF for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant in Somerset and a programme for Thames Water.

“With a record order book and high levels of tendering activity across all of its markets, the group is well positioned to deliver further progress,” said the firm.
