Nuclear reaction


I write with reference to your article Share Options (NCE 24/31 March) as someone who has recently experienced a move from British Nuclear Group (BNG) into consultancy.

Indeed, I am briefly cited in the article although, contrary to the perspectives attributed to me, I am highly optimistic about the future for both BNG and emerging consultancies wishing to develop into this area.

Innovation has been at the heart of the research and development programs which British Nuclear Fuels has nurtured over many years.

This has resulted in many market leading techniques and technologies that have been applied to complex problems with great success. The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) is not just creating a more open pathway into the nuclear sector, its creation has also given BNG and its subsidiaries the opportunity to diversify and create new sector alliances as the company develops into its commercial portfolio.

Consultancies wishing to enter into the nuclear market as either Tier 2 or Tier 3 suppliers also bring innovation and flexibility to the table.

Those who can demonstrate a strong and trustworthy partnership and delivery ethic have the opportunity to flourish. Formation of the NDA has widened the commercial pathway and breathed new life into the resource market in this sector.
