Shipbuilders Cammell Laird and Nuvia have formed an ambitious partnership that aims to ‘catapult’ them to the forefront of the UK’s multi billion pound new nuclear build programme.
The agreement will see Merseyside based Cammell Laird and nuclear engineering specialist Nuvia Limited, based in Risley, Warrington, join forces to bid for contracts for the fabrication of heavy modules and components for new nuclear plants.
Nuvia Managing Director, Keith Collett said the partnership had ‘incredible potential’ and work is already underway to prepare the firms to bid for contracts.
“We are hugely excited about this alliance,” he said. “Nuvia has an established track record of delivering large nuclear projects in the UK. Reinforcing our expertise in the sector, which covers the entire cycle from new build, to operations and maintenance, to final decommissioning and waste disposal, with Cammell Laird’s skill set forges a formidable team.”
Cammell Laird chief executive John Syvret said: “The nuclear sector, like the off shore renewables sector, presents huge growth potential for Cammell Laird. We can offer experience in heavy fabrication, specialist engineering and project management together with unrivalled facilities including our 40,000 m2 modular construction hall, capable of fabricating modules and major components of up to 1000 tonnes.”
