Nuclear South West is a public/private partnership supporting the nuclear industry with innovation, skills and £50 billion of supply chain opportunities.
Major projects include EDF Energy’s Hinkley Point C and Horizon Nuclear Power’s Oldbury, four decommissioning sites and defence contracts. The Cluster is well established and growing, with the UK’s highest density of nuclear sites and over 180 nuclear-related organisations such as headquarters of BAE Systems, EDF Energy, Hitachi GE, Horizon Nuclear Power, Magnox Ltd and NNB Genco.
The South West is at the forefront of innovative nuclear systems research. The highly-acclaimed South West Nuclear Hub incorporating the Nuclear Research Centre, offers opportunities for collaboration with industry partners.
The National College for Nuclear will open in the South West in 2017, to enhance the highly-skilled, technical workforce trained in the behaviours, expectations and culture of the nuclear sector.
EDF Energy, as part of its regional procurement strategy, has partnered with the Somerset Chamber of Commerce and the Hinkley Supply Chain Team to engage with Somerset and South West businesses.
The Nuclear South West team offers extensive business support and networking opportunities for potential investors. Any nuclear-related organisations are invited to contact the team to discuss the opportunities within this thriving cluster.
