Assystem wins agreement from UK Atomic Energy Authority

9 November 2018

Nuclear engineering company Assystem has been awarded a major, multi-discipline design framework agreement to support United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) fusion development, the company said on 5 November. Assystem will support the engineering design of projects across all major disciplines including mechanical engineering, process engineering, electrical, control and instrumentation, building services and civil engineering, and integrated design.

The Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) is one of the world’s leading fusion research laboratories; aiming to develop fusion as a new source of clean energy for tomorrow’s power stations. The centre is home to the UK’s fusion research including the Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak (MAST) experiment upgrade as well as the Joint European Torus (JET), currently the world’s largest fusion device. CCFE has close links with other European and international fusion laboratories and the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor (ITER) under construction at Cadarache, France.

Christian Jeanneau, Assystem Nuclear Senior Vice President, said: “We are proud to be contributing to the future of the nuclear industry by supporting the supply of sustainable energy in the UK. We are committed to building a long-term partnership with UKAEA as part of Assystem’s long-term strategic development and are delighted to be awarded this new framework agreement to provide multi-discipline engineering support.”
