News: Nuclear made clear in Rotherham


The next meeting of the Advanced Manufacturing Forum (AMF) in Rotherham looks at the support and expert advice available to manufacturing companies interested in the opportunities of nuclear new-build.

The AMF is the technology network for manufacturing businesses and run by the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing. The regular AMF events cover a range of topics of relevance to manufacturing businesses, offering insight into current and emerging technologies and supply chain issues.

The event on June 28 will include presentations from leading companies and organisations in the nuclear supply chain, including Areva, the Nuclear Industry Association, the Manufacturing Advisory Service, and NOF Energy.

The Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC) is currently under construction on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham. It 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.

The Nuclear AMRC has launched a new Fit For Nuclear (F4N) programme based around a questionnaire covering key areas of business operation and performance. The results tell a company whether it has the potential to supply the nuclear industry, and what measures it needs to take to meet the industry's requirements.
