Jacobs to develop NPP for heavy industry

Jacobs was selected by the U.K.’s National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) to help develop a new type of nuclear power plant. NNL is working with the Japan Atomic Energy Agency on a new reactor design for the U.K. market, with a focus on production of high temperature heat for industrial applications.

As NNL’s multi-discipline design consultant, Jacobs will review the initial designs and delivery plans for the high temperature gas reactor.

Jacobs will help develop cost and schedule estimates as part of a broader investment case submission to HM Treasury; review market demand and end-use cases for HTGR technology; carry out a detailed engineering design review to ensure regulatory compliance; and support engagement with U.K. regulators.
