Breaking into the nuclear sector demands vision and commitment from every part of your business. This workshop will give you a clear understanding of the opportunities in the nuclear supply chain, and the practical tools you will need to engage your staff through strategic thinking and policy deployment.

The half-day event will help you understand:

  • What support is available through the Fit For Nuclear programme, and whether F4N is right for your business.
  • How to identify and close any gaps in your capabilities or performance, to meet nuclear industry requirements.
  • Why you need a strategic approach to business improvement for nuclear.
  • How to link your strategic vision to effective deployment tools to engage all your operational staff.

The workshop is designed for senior directors who want to better understand how they can win work in nuclear, and need to share their vision with the people who will deliver it. It’s also a great opportunity to meet our nuclear specialists and industrial advisors; learn more about the F4N programme; and gain a deeper understanding of strategic planning and deployment for business excellence.

NuScale UK supplier day

Wednesday 13 July, Nuclear AMRC.

Small modular reactor developer NuScale Power is holding a supplier day, hosted by the Nuclear AMRC, to give UK-based nuclear engineering, manufacturing and construction companies the opportunity to meet NuScale representatives and learn about the company’s programme of work. The event forms part of a long-term objective to build NuScale’s UK supply chain in preparation for potential deployment in the UK market.

US-based NuScale is keen to develop lasting relationships with UK-based suppliers, small and large, from straight supply to build-to-print to strategic partnerships. Potential suppliers are invited to participate in this day of presentations, workshops and one-to-one meetings designed to inform them of the company’s plans for the UK market and how they can become involved in NuScale’s programme.

Speakers include key members of the NuScale executive team, as well as Fluor Limited, Ultra Electronics and the Nuclear AMRC.

Nuclear Decommissioning Europe

31 May–1 June, Manchester.

An international conference on the challenges of nuclear decommissioning, from Nuclear Energy Insider. Now in its seventh year, the Nuclear Decommissioning Conference is the industry’s leading event for the global nuclear decommissioning industry consistently bringing together over 250 nuclear decommissioning and waste management experts.

Sellafield site

NDC2016 will highlight the lessons learned and key strategic thinking behind the industry’s current and future nuclear decommissioning projects:

  • Understand how the transition from operations to decommissioning will be affected by safety culture, timeline and resourcing challenges.
  • Take lessons learned from current decommissioning sites including the common challenges faced within European gas-graphite reactors.
  • Develop strategies for back-end cost cutting including fleet wide decommissioning programmes, implementing new technologies and cost estimation techniques.
  • Address the socio-political, regulatory and technical issues facing nuclear waste management and spent fuel from both decommissioning and operational activities.
  • Ensure business development success by getting the latest on future opportunities across the NDA estate and European decommissioning markets.

Speakers include Nuclear AMRC business development manager Jack Hardy.

The power of additive

26 January 2016.


The Nuclear AMRC invites you to explore the state of the art in bulk additive manufacturing processes for the energy industry.

This special event will focus on additive manufacturing technologies and applications for civil nuclear, oil and gas, renewables and other innovative power generation sectors.

Metal additive manufacturing can bring significant commercial benefits to the power generation industry, including reduced lead time and production cost, while avoiding problems with transportation and supply chain capability and capacity.

New additive techniques can also help overcome technical challenges including microstructural inhomogeneity, defect occurance and detection, and size and geometric limitations.

Discover how major companies are already developing and implementing bulk additive manufacturing techniques, and find out how your business could benefit from these new capabilities.
