Nuclear

Our approach

We recognise the vital role nuclear has in achieving the carbon-neutral future. We can’t bridge the gap between renewable capacity and the increasing demands for electricity without baseload from secure low carbon, nuclear power generation.

To be competitive, new nuclear power generation requires a step-change in overall affordability, competitiveness and performance across all segments of the nuclear fuel cycle, from design and build through to generation and sustainable decommissioning. Only through innovation, and with commitment across government and the supply chain, will this be possible.

Our insights

The connection imperative

Against a backdrop of ambitious Government decarbonisation ambitions and ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26, the opportunity for UK nuclear leaders to play a leading role in the path to net zero is now.

Based on our conversations with leaders across the nuclear fuel cycle, and produced in collaboration with the Nuclear Industry Association, we've set out how a culture of purpose-driven connectedness can create a sector that is more prominent and progressive.

Leaders tell us they know what needs to be done. Our report shows how it can be achieved at both an organisational level and collectively across the sector.

What we can do for you

Through our work on transformation programmes in other highly regulated, highly unionised industries, such as defence and security, water, rail and aviation, we understand the best practices that can drive performance across diverse nuclear assets. We do this by:

  • Sustaining high performance in highly regulated industry
    We harness the inherent sense of purpose people in the sector feel to create a focus on performance and safety.
  • Maximising value across the enterprise
    Stranded assets, ageing and new, need a risk managed approach to prioritisation, supported by remote operations and predictive maintenance. That means adopting advanced data analytics, including cognitive digital twinning while focusing on operational excellence and cyber security.
  • Reducing costs across the supply chain and manufacturing
    Through our smart supply chain systems, we can challenge the nuclear supply chain premium and drive value across major delivery and manufacturing programmes. We do this by combining our expertise in systems engineering, supply chain management and manufacturing with our Perfect Cost Grid approach.
  • Adopting enduring change through innovation
    With our Global Innovation and Technology Centre in Cambridge, UK, and our experienced team of experts, we help nuclear organisations innovate, become more agile and take a different perspective. And we do it all while embedding a sustainable culture of innovation across the organisation.
