Can a contract be utilised after a Final Account has been issued if further scope is requested?

Due to design changes a new plant item is now required to be manufactured and installed. The supplier we wish to use has already completed eight of these items, however, the subcontract has been final accounted (around two months ago).

Is it possible under the NEC 3 Supply Contract to issue a further CE utilising this contract or does the final account render this contract closed and a new contract will need to be formed.

Could a deed of variation be used?

Thank you for any and all help.
