Advanced nuclear technology (SMRs and AMRs)

As we journey towards Net Zero, our services deliver innovation to reduce risk and assure your technology development and deployment programmes.

For over three decades, Frazer-Nash has been providing clients across the nuclear industry with comprehensive life cycle support. Our wide-ranging expertise means we are well positioned to support the development of Gen III+ or Gen IV Advanced Nuclear Technology (ANT) – Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) and Advanced Modular Reactors (AMRs) – within the UK and internationally.

Enabling technology development and deployment to achieve Net Zero carbon emissions

Renowned for our work in the UK nuclear sector, with over 30 years of experience, we deliver best practice to you through our advanced technical capability and diverse industry experience, to realise the development and deployment of your technology to generate low carbon electricity, heat and hydrogen.

Having been selected by the UK Government's Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to lead aspects of the Nuclear Innovation Programme, we have a pedigree within the evolving and exciting ANT market: further information can be found here. Building on this work, alongside our broader capability across key areas such as reactor core modelling, structural integrity, graphite, safety, security and techno-economic assessment, we can optimise our offering and tailor it for the maturity of your fission or fusion based technology.

Clients rely on us to assure that their projects meet all safety critical and environmental regulations throughout nuclear facility planning, development, regulatory approval, deployment, operations, decommissioning, clean-up and storage.
