Working with our Developer Client Harworth Group, successful completion has been achieved on UK Atomic Energy Authority’s new nuclear fusion technology research facility at its Waverley Advanced Manufacturing Park.
The facility has been funded as part of the Government’s Nuclear Sector Deal delivered through the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
UKAEA will use the facility to develop and test joining technologies for fusion materials and components, which will then be tested and evaluated under conditions simulating the inside of a fusion reactor (including high heat flux, in-vacuum, and strong magnetic fields).
This facility will help UK companies win contracts as part of ITER (“The Way”) which is one of the most ambitious energy projects in the world today.
The project presented unique engineering challenges for our engineering teams.
