TWI enters an SMR consortium led by Rolls-Royce

TWI has entered a consortium led by Rolls-Royce and with funding from UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) to develop a compact nuclear power station. 
The consortium has appointed Tom Samson as interim chief executive.
Tom Samson, who is the former CEO of NuGeneration Ltd and the founder and CEO of Guardian Power has joined the team with immediate effect.
The consortium has brought together project partners including Assystem, Atkins, BAM Nuttall, Jacobs, Laing O’Rourke, National Nuclear Laboratory, Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, Rolls-Royce, and TWI.
The power station uses a compact design and components manufactured in UK factories, which will then be transported to existing nuclear sites for assembly inside a weatherproof canopy. This will cut costs by avoiding disruptions caused by adverse weather conditions while also securing efficiency savings through the use of streamlined and standardized manufacturing processes for the components.
