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.

18 February 2016.

ebeam tubesheet

The Nuclear AMRC and High Value Manufacturing Catapult invite you to help address the challenges facing the development of bulk additive manufacturing capabilities in the UK.

This interactive event will focus on bulk additive layer technologies which can add real value to the UK’s manufacturing supply chains, and explore the steps needed to develop and implement these tools and techniques in the short and long term.

The roadmapping session will be led by industrial experts and researchers from a range of high-value sectors, with the aim of creating a research and development pathway for new additive manufacturing technologies.

This event offers manufacturers an exciting opportunity to gain exclusive insight into the state of the art in additive manufacturing, and to help shape R&D priorities across the High Value Manufacturing Catapult through the cross-centre Additive Manufacturing & 3D Printing Forum.

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.
