The Nuclear AMRC is launching a new series of supply chain workshops to help manufacturing companies prepare for nuclear new-build.
Launching in early March, the one-day sessions will help delegates deepen their understanding of the requirements and challenges of manufacturing for nuclear new-build. Attendees will be equipped with practical tools to help them prepare their own businesses to enter the supply chain.
The workshop begins with an introduction to the nuclear market, including a review of reactor technologies and components, and a look at how manufacturing can affect material performance within a nuclear environment.
Delegates will have the opportunity to tour the Nuclear AMRC’s facilities on the Advanced Manufacturing Park, South Yorkshire, before splitting into specialised break-out sessions to examine areas in more details.
Topics on offer include nuclear codes and standards, supply chain structure, skills development, working with universities on R&D projects, and tendering for contracts in the nuclear industry.
The initial events on 1 and 2 March are limited to 15 companies per day. For more information about these and future workshops, contact Andrew Clarke on 0161 275 4338, or email Andrew.Clarke@manchester.ac.uk
