Fusion in Rotherham

By 22 July 2020 Events

4 September 2020, webinar.

The UK Atomic Energy Authority is building a new research and testing facility on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham, to develop and test technologies for fusion materials and components.

The new centre will work closely with research and industrial partners in South Yorkshire and beyond to put the UK in a strong position to commercialise nuclear fusion as a major source of low-carbon electricity. It will require regular supplies of specialist metals and materials, providing further opportunities for UK companies.

Design for UKAEA Rotherham facility

To introduce the new facility to the supply chain, the Nuclear Industry Association is hosting a webinar with UKAEA, Nuclear AMRC and engineering groups IDOM and EGB Engineering, from 1-2pm on Friday 4 September 2020.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Damon Johnstone, UKAEA Yorkshire.
  • Prof. Steve Jones, Nuclear AMRC.
  • Sergio Sádaba Cipriaín, IDOM Nuclear Services.
  • Dr Arnold Gad-Briggs, EGB Engineering.
  • Tom Greatrex, NIA (host).
