M5tec wins a Technical Consultancy framework with the European Spallation Source.

M5tec wins a Mechanical Engineering and Design framework with the European Spallation Source (ESS) which will see them supply consultancy services directly into ESS.

M5tec tendered for the work as a lead supplier via the ESS supplier portal which led to them winning 1 of 14 Mechanical Engineering and Design frameworks. M5tec were supported in their bid by Davis and Musgrove who will support the framework as a tier 2 supplier.

ESS is one of the largest science and technology infrastructure projects being built today. The facility design and construction include the most powerful linear proton accelerator ever built, a five-tonne, helium-cooled tungsten target wheel, 15 state-of-the-art neutron instruments, a suite of laboratories, and a supercomputing data management and software development centre. In the context of its history and future as a scientific organisation, however, it is more than the sum of its parts. It is a brand-new international Big Science organisation, built from the ground up in Lund, Sweden. (European Spallation Source | ESS)
