London UK: Key project leaders including Rolls-Royce’s Vice President of Strategy & Business Development; David Orr, Moltex Energy’s COO; Rory O’Sullivan and Nuclear AMRC’s Business Development Manager Johnny Stephenson will co-host an online event on successfully engaging the UK supply chain to ensure that the UK is ready to deploy SMRs commercially.

The webinar will focus on the opportunities available to the UK suppliers to be part of a domestic and international SMR manufacturing industry as well as how the reactor designers will engage with the nuclear supply chains. Additionally, the webinar will also take an in depth look into the capability and capacity of the UK Supply chain to manufacture and construct an SMR for commercial deployment.

To ensure you’re up to date with progress in the BEIS (formerly DECC) SMR competition, participants will provide their insights into government’s involvement and the importance of their role in making the UK a leader in the global SMR industry.

This webinar will be extremely timely with a decision on Hinkley Point C currently stalling and the costs of that project ever increasing the argument for SMRs becomes stronger. Pair this with the retirement of coal fired plants meaning the need for baseload power is increasing and SMRs become even more feasible. On the upcoming exclusive webinar, Senior Industry Analyst at Nuclear Energy Insider, John Furness expressed, “With the UK in need of a clean, affordable and secure power supply, Small Modular Reactors are key to the solution of this energy trilemma and designers engaging with the supply chain is key to ensuring their success”
