Systems, engineering and technology company Frazer-Nash Consultancy has become a member of the UK's Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC).
Nuclear AMRC, part of the UK’s High Value Manufacturing Catapult, collaborates with companies of all sizes to help them innovate and win work in the nuclear supply chain.
Frazer-Nash’s new three-year, tier two membership of the Nuclear AMRC builds on an ongoing collaboration as part of the Nuclear Innovation Programme funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
"Frazer-Nash will provide business and technical expertise to support the development of the Nuclear AMRC’s control and instrumentation (C&I) services, including a new test facility," Nuclear AMRC announced.
The project is being led by Simon White, Frazer-Nash group leader for electrical control & instrumentation, as part of the reactor safety and security programme funded by BEIS.
“As well as working closely with the Nuclear AMRC’s growing C&I research team, we will be collaborating on research and development for small modular reactor and advanced modular reactor technologies, as well as other clean energy technologies such as green hydrogen production and industrial cogeneration," said Tom Purnell, Frazer-Nash business manager for the advanced nuclear and government sector.
"These technologies, among others, form a key component of the UK government’s strategy for enabling low-carbon electricity generation and achieving net-zero carbon targets.”
