Keith Ridgway, programme director at the Nuclear AMRC said: "We're delighted to welcome NES to the Nuclear AMRC. As an established leader in a range of nuclear markets, they are ideally placed to make the most of the opportunities of the UK new-build programme. We will work closely with them to help enhance their technical and operational capabilities to win new business at home and worldwide.

"NES also bring a wealth of expertise and resources that will help all the companies we work with. As a Tier One member, NES will take a seat on our board. Their experience across the nuclear marketplace will be invaluable in helping determine the research and business support we deliver for the benefit of companies across the nuclear manufacturing supply chain."
