Fugro given Fit for Nuclear status

Fugro GeoServices

Fugro has been awarded Fit for Nuclear status following assessment by a UK research body.

Specialising in marine geotechnics, the Fugro manufacturing centre in Falmouth received the award from the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), which aims to help UK manufacturing companies compete for nuclear contracts.

The Fit for Nuclear (F4N) approval follows an on-site verification visit by an F4N assessor, as well as a review of project experience evidence within the nuclear field.

The award assesses suppliers in six key areas and recognises nuclear excellence.

“Fugro made excellent use of Fit for Nuclear to further strengthen its services for the energy market,” said Nuclear AMRC nuclear specialist Martin Ride.

“The team performed to an outstanding standard, developing and delivering a focused action plan to complete their F4N journey in just eight months.

“They understand the challenges and the commitment needed to work in the civil nuclear industry, and have proved themselves ready to work with key players in the UK’s new build programme.”

Operations director at Fugro GeoServices Mark Adams added: “Achieving F4N status will give us opportunities to further showcase our in-house capabilities in a market that demands quality and expertise.”

F4N assessment areas

  1. Strategy and leadership
  2. Design and project management
  3. People excellence
  4. Process excellence
  5. Health and safety
