Invensys eyes nuclear deal

British engineering group Invensys yesterday said it was in talks to provide controls and systems for up to four new nuclear power stations in China.

Chief executive Ulf Henriksson said at Nomura’s Rail Infrastructure seminar that Invensys was increasingly targeting emerging markets, particularly in its power, oil and gas and railway operations.

“We have had considerable success during the past two years in China’s rapidly expanding nuclear power generation market, and we expect this success to continue, as we are currently in negotiations to supply such solutions to four additional greenfield nuclear powers stations,” he said.

The group, which also provides rail signalling equipment, is looking at partnerships with other rail infrastructure providers.
