Nuclear Power Delivery UK signs agreements with supply chain

A company established to deliver Westinghouse nuclear power plants in the UK has announced that it has signed a memoranda of understanding (MOUs) with three of the biggest names in the nuclear industry supply chain – BAE Systems, Doosan Power Systems and Rolls-Royce.

Nuclear Power Delivery UK, which was established to deliver the Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear reactor to UK customers, signed the new agreements to build on the MOUs signed with the same three organisations by Westinghouse in September 2008. Nuclear Power Delivery UK comprises of Westinghouse electric company, the Shaw Group, Laing O’Rourke and Toshiba.

The specific contents of each MOU are confidential, but the agreements collectively address scope to support Nuclear Power Delivery UK, including in areas of manufacturing and components, supply chain and logistics and engineering support.

Nuclear Power Delivery UK Managing Director Rita Bowser said that the new MOUs sets the basis for more detailed collaboration between the companies as the reactor is assessed by UK regulators for potential new nuclear build in the UK.

 “We are delighted to be announcing these new agreements – building on the success of the previous links which were established by Westinghouse.

The fact we are now doing this as Nuclear Power Delivery UK means we can bring a clearer team focus to where these major organisations can support us, and allows us all to look at how we can best work together to bring the AP1000 nuclear plant for UK customers as reliably and cost-effectively as possible,” Bowser said.
