News: Nuclear supply chain events in Rotherham


A number of events are taking place in March designed to help manufacturers who are seeking business opportunities within the nuclear supply chain.

The Nuclear AMRC is launching a new series of supply chain workshops to help manufacturing companies prepare for nuclear new-build.

Launching in early March, the one-day sessions will help delegates deepen their understanding of the requirements and challenges of manufacturing for nuclear new-build. Attendees will be equipped with practical tools to help them prepare their own businesses to enter the supply chain.

The workshop begins with an introduction to the nuclear market, including a review of reactor technologies and components, and a look at how manufacturing can affect material performance within a nuclear environment.

Delegates will have the opportunity to tour the Nuclear AMRC's facilities on the Advanced Manufacturing Park, before splitting into specialised break-out sessions to examine areas in more details.

Topics on offer include nuclear codes and standards, supply chain structure, skills development, working with universities on R&D projects, and tendering for contracts in the nuclear industry.

The initial events on March 1 and 2.

The Special Metals Forum (SMF) in association with Sellafield Ltd are hosting a Nuclear Decommissioning event in Rotherham on March 10.

As well as highlighting lucrative opportunities within the nuclear decommissioning industry, the conference will discuss ways in which companies can join the tier 2 supply chain.

Sellafield Ltd is the company responsible for safely delivering decommissioning, reprocessing, nuclear waste management and fuel manufacturing activities on behalf of the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. Now under the ownership of Nuclear Management Partners, Sellafield Ltd has more than 50 years of experience in the industry.

Alastair Lang, SMF Programme Manager said: "The UK's nuclear industry represents a lucrative potential market for businesses in the special metals sector, both in terms of the new power stations due to be built over the coming decades and the decommissioning of existing facilities. This event will give delegates an opportunity to hear from industry experts as well as the chance to network with key players in the nuclear field."

The SMF is the membership arm of the National Metals Technology Centre (NAMTEC) and the event takes place at Swinden House.

The next event in the AMRC's successful Advanced Manufacturing Forum will provide an exclusive insight into the current state of the nuclear manufacturing supply chain.

The seminar and networking event, titled: "Nuclear new build: what now for manufacturers?", will provide an update on progress in the UK's nuclear power programme, and advice for manufacturing SMEs on how they can access the opportunities for new business. The morning event will include presentations from prominent companies along the supply chain, including EDF Energy, Rolls-Royce and Newburgh Engineering.

The AMF takes place on Tuesday March 22 at Dormer Tools' facilities on the Advanced Manufacturing Park, Rotherham.
