National Nuclear Laboratory wins £7m research contract

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has awarded £7 million in funding for nuclear research.

It has given a £5m contract for advanced nuclear fuels research in areas such as reactor modelling and plutonium-based fuels to the National Nuclear Laboratory, a government-owned facility based at the Sellafield nuclear fuel reprocessing and nuclear decommissioning site in Cumbria. The lab has also won a second contract, worth £2m, for research into recycling of fuels and waste management. The funding is part of the UK’s national nuclear R&D programme.

Richard Harrington, a junior minister for industry and energy, said that the lab would work with partners to help the government deliver on initiatives such as the clean growth plan and the industrial strategy.
