Atkins buys US nuclear consultancy

NCE stock nuclear

Atkins has finalised its purchase of the Projects, Products and Technology (PP&T) segment of EnergySolutions.

The firm says the £206M move paves the way for expansion in the US as well as China and Japan. PP&T specialises in delivering nuclear waste remediation projects, including providing products and technology.

The 650 PP&T staff will join Atkins to bring the team to 2,000, whose projects include the Fukushima clean up. Atkins says the business is to try and capitalise on future markets such as Small Modular Reactors (SMRs).

Atkins’ US and Asia Pacifica nuclear division president Mark Morant said: “Today marks a step change in what Atkins is able to offer clients – we have the capability to work on almost any project, anywhere in the world. Our technology portfolio offers extensive opportunity in established and new markets alike from North America to China. It is an extremely exciting period for the business and has already opened a number of doors to future opportunities around the world.”
