England’s Northwest is home to one of the world’s largest concentrations of nuclear facilities with a renowned skills base and world class expertise in nuclear technology research & development. The region contains half of the UK’s 45,000 highly skilled nuclear workers, several major nuclear sites supported by well established supply chains and the UK’s main centres for nuclear research.

Government energy policy identifies that nuclear power will play a key role in the future energy mix. With all elements of the nuclear fuel cycle in the region, Northwest companies will be playing a pivotal role in the design, construction and operation of new nuclear power plants, and in providing the fuel cycle operations and technology required to sustain the nuclear programme for many decades to come.
