Nuclear News – Late April 2022

Rolls-Royce SMR has announced it will create 400 jobs, split between Warrington and Derby, to support the growth of its nuclear power station business.  SMR’s are small modular reactors which will use nuclear power to deliver energy needs for the future.

Rolls-Royce SMR is the UK domestic energy champion and will play a key role in achieving the Government’s British Energy Security Strategy, which pledges to accelerate the expansion of nuclear by delivering the equivalent of one nuclear reactor per year instead of one per decade.

The programme is the first of its kind in the UK focused on developing a factory-built nuclear power plant that is deliverable and scalable at a global level.
