Wood, the global consulting and engineering company, will expand its operations and grow its presence in the U.S. power market with a new contract in Kentucky.

The five-year agreement, which will employ approximately 120 people, includes mechanical maintenance and operations for two power plants and a third location in Louisville, KY.

“Following the successful delivery of a number of previous projects, Wood was ideally positioned to build on our established partnership and this new operations contract,” said Paul Leonard, President of Wood’s operations business in the Americas.

“We are continuing to diversify our operations business, and this contract marks a significant step in our continued growth in this market, solidifying our position as a power solutions provider of choice in the Americas.”

“As pressure grows for energy diversification, Wood is committed to working with our clients to unlock expert power solutions for utilities, cities and industry alike, evolving traditional technologies and modernising existing systems.”
