NRL Group lends support to Small Modular Reactor low carbon plans

The NRL Group has signed up as a joint sponsor of NOF’s UK Nuclear SMR Consortium webinar, designed to educate and inform attendees of the low carbon opportunities Small Modular Reactors (SMR) can provide the UK’s power industry.

NOF, the business development experts for the energy sector is organising the event, works on behalf of UK members and network of partners to put companies of all sizes in touch with the best and most innovative supply chain businesses in the UK.

The webinar, held on Thursday, May 6, will bring together members of the UK SMR consortium including founding member Rolls-Royce. Attendees will also hear from the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (NAMRC) as they discuss how SMR advancement will help to achieve net zero by 2050, as well as the potential supply chain opportunities SMR projects will provide.

Sponsorship of the event aligns with the NRL Group’s own strategy which includes a focus on supporting their global engineering clients to ensure they have the skills required to maximise the benefit of future energy projects such as emerging net zero opportunities.

NRL’s Non-Destructive Testing business has provided safety-critical qualification and inspection services to the UK civil nuclear market since first establishing operations on Sellafield in 1983. In recent years, the business has extended its expertise to include ultrasonic services as well as radiography, to support nuclear new build projects with the latest technological advances.

Similarly, NRL’s Recruitment business also plays a major role across the nuclear supply chain and other key energy sectors – supporting thousands of candidates each year to find career opportunities whilst identifying solutions to address skills shortages and workforce planning demands.
