TSB to launch £13m nuclear programme for businesses

The Technology Strategy Board is to sponsor businesses to develop products and services for nuclear energy.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority will join the TSB in providing a total of £13 million for projects proposed by businesses that seek, according to a TSB announcement, “to take advantage of the opportunities that the growing nuclear market offers”.

The programme will focus on construction, manufacturing, operation, maintenance, decommissioning and waste. There are no details yet on how big a role research will play. The TSB announcement says that further information will be available in 2014.
