A UK Consortium led by Rolls-Royce will deliver:

  • Safe, reliable and affordable low-carbon electricity, helping the UK deliver on its 2050 decarbonisation commitments
  • Reduced reliance on foreign gas imports and ‘intermittent generation’ technologies, strengthening the country’s energy security
  • 40,000 skilled jobs
  • £100bn boost to the UK economy (2030-2050) through development, manufacture, operation, exports and decommissioning
  • A reinvigorated UK nuclear certified supply chain, providing everything from research and raw materials to high-tech manufacturing and services
  • Access to a £400bn global export opportunity

Development of a UK SMR plant promises to be one of the largest national engineering collaborations ever undertaken and Rolls-Royce is ideally placed to champion a British consortium.
