Rolls-Royce supports NPD in deployment of nuclear reactor

Power systems provider Rolls-Royce has signed an agreement to collaborate with the Nuclear Power Delivery (NPD) consortium in its plans to deploy the Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear reactor in the UK.

Under the terms of the agreement, Rolls-Royce will support NPD in the development of proposals for engineering, manufacture and supply of mission-critical components for the heart of the nuclear reactor.

Rolls-Royce will also explore the provision of nuclear engineering, technical support and supply-chain management expertise to the consortium.
