Project details:

The Nuclear AMRC Midlands facility is scheduled for completion by early 2023 and will work with companies of all sizes to help them win work in carbon-neutral supply chains as part of the global drive to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. It is located in Derby close to Rolls-Royce and within 20 minutes’ drive of global manufacturers Toyota, Alstom and JCB. 

Development of the new Nuclear AMRC facility follows a successful pilot programme at Infinity Park’s Connect iHub, which is now home to 15 engineers and support staff. The new research site will support 35 collaborative research and development projects within the first five years, in high-value sectors such as aerospace, automotive and rail as well as nuclear and other low-carbon energy technologies, adding a projected £71 million to the local economy. It will play a vital role in helping manufacturers seize the opportunities and tackle the challenges of the national transition to net zero emissions. A new generation of nuclear power is at the heart of the UK’s plans for a secure low-carbon energy mix, and we will work closely with companies of all sizes to help them join the supply chains for technologies such as small modular reactors, fusion power, and clean hydrogen generation.
