Nuvia is a technical advisor for AMR F&D programme

06 November 2018

Nuvia has been appointed as the Technical Advisor for phase one of the programme, acting on behalf of the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Nuvia will provide an assessment of the feasibility studies submitted by each of the Advanced Modular Reactor (AMR) Feasibility and Development (F&D) research initiative contractors.

This BEIS investment is to establish an AMR F&D project and to explore potential UK involvement in AMR deployment in the UK and abroad. For this project AMRs are defined as a broad group of advanced nuclear reactors. They aim to maximise the amount of off-site factory fabrication and can target: generating low cost electricity; increased flexibility in delivering electricity to the grid; increased functionality, such as the provision of heat output for domestic or industrial purposes, or facilitating the production of hydrogen; and alternative applications that may generate additional revenue or economic growth.

At the end of the project, Nuvia will provide BEIS with reports on elements of the feasibility studies, including providing an assessment on the validity, credibility and completeness. This report will then be used in an overarching review to down select contractors for Phase 2 of the programme.
