EDF has signed a new membership agreement with the University of Sheffield Nuclear AMRC to drive innovation in low-carbon power generation and support UK manufacturers. EDF has supported the Nuclear AMRC’s development over the past decade, and the new tier one membership strengthens and deepens the relationship between the two organisations. Collaboration will focus on research and development to deliver the UK’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, and the goal of the Nuclear Sector Deal to reduce the cost of nuclear new build by 30 per cent.

Derby’s bid to establish a world-class manufacturing research centre which would create more than than 100 jobs has moved another step closer. A full planning application has now been submitted to create the facility which would take up around 4,400 square metres of floorspace at Infinity Park. The building would be occupied by the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC), and the University of Derby. The centre is expected to initially create up to 70 high-value jobs, rising to 120 and would be capable of large-scale, high-precision machining, fabrication and assembly. It would have production space and two-storeys of office space with car parking, including the provision of four electric car charging points, cycle storage and a secure service yard for HGV operations.
