News: Winning business in the nuclear renaissance


Experts at the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC) in Rotherham are helping to provide a knowledge transfer set of workshops to assist SMEs in winning business in the nuclear renaissance.

The Nuclear AMRC and the Nuclear Industry Association (NIA) are supporting the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) to put together an event next month based on a request from businesses for more in-depth information to prepare them for entry into the nuclear supply chain.

The civil nuclear sector is worth £40bn to the UK economy over the next 15 years. Currently under construction on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham, The Nuclear AMRC will provide a focal point for the bulk of the UK civil nuclear manufacturing industry supply chain, ensuring that manufacturers in the UK have the capability and capacity required to compete for nuclear new build in the UK and globally, from skills training to research and development.

At the event, the Nuclear AMRC team will provide an introduction to the nuclear product development cycle, how the centre can help companies prepare products for the market, and how SMEs can prepare to meet the tough quality standards of the industry.

CEOs and directors from small and medium size manufacturers will be advised on what they need to do to be considered as a serious nuclear supplier, where to look for contracts and how to tender for them, how MAS, the NIA and Nuclear AMRC can help them to ensure that their business is viable to enter the civil nuclear market, and how to improve their business capability through Research and Development to compete effectively for contracts.

Sessions will cover contracting and tendering, quality codes and standards, and opportunities in decommissioning and waste management.

The event takes place at Doncaster Racecourse on February 17. It is free of charge for small and medium size manufacturers based in the UK (fewer than 250 employees, an annual turnover of less than 50m Euros and not part of a larger group). Delegate fees for large manufacturers are £195 plus VAT and for non manufacturers £295 plus VAT.
