Rolls-Royce SMR Supplier Conference


Rolls-Royce SMR Supplier Conference

4th June 2024

Rolls-Royce SMR has announced that it will hold its first Supplier Conference on 19 June at the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre’s Factory 2050.

This is the first event of its kind will be an important part of creating a diverse and resilient supply chain, essential in deploying Rolls-Royce SMR’s ‘factory-built’ nuclear power plant.

Existing and potential new suppliers are invited to attend and engage with senior representatives of Rolls-Royce SMR where they can discuss how to become involved in this generational opportunity.

Rolls-Royce SMR’s Chief Finance Officer, Peter Morton, said: “Our suppliers, and the wider supply chain, will be critical to the success of Rolls-Royce SMR and in maximising social value.

“We want to understand the breadth and depth of the capability and capacity within the supply chain, building on the great conversations we’ve had over the last few years, so we can move forward together at pace.

“We’re reaching out to small, medium and large organisations from the UK and further afield – with and without nuclear experience – to ensure we have an inclusive and exciting event with a diverse mix of suppliers.”

The Rolls-Royce SMR is the first nuclear power station to be designed and built in the UK for over a generation and offers a radically different approach to delivering new nuclear power. Each ‘factory-built’ nuclear power station will provide enough low-carbon electricity to power a million homes for more than 60 years and will create thousands of long-term, high-skilled jobs.

Last year, Rolls-Royce SMR launched a supply chain portal [link] to build new relationships with organisations that have products and services to offer and help them in becoming a Rolls-Royce SMR supplier. Over 700 suppliers have already registered, helping build a strong and resilient supply chain and underpinning Rolls-Royce SMR’s social value commitment.

Notes to Editors:

 

Rolls-Royce SMR has received UK Government funding of £210m as part of Phase 2 of the Low-Cost Nuclear Challenge Project, administered by UKRI, which has been supplemented by £280m of private capital. The aim of this Government support is to accelerate the Rolls-Royce SMR design and pass at least Step 2 of the (GDA) regulatory process carried out by the nuclear industry’s independent regulators (The Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR), Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales).

 

Rolls-Royce SMR welcomes comments and questions about the Rolls-Royce SMR design. This feedback will be incorporated into the GDA process and may be published anonymously on the Rolls-Royce SMR GDA website and used during dialogue with our regulators.
