The UK Atomic Energy Authority has lodged a planning application for a specialist research centre, designed by Bond Bryan, at its Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) site in Oxford.
Bond Bryan has been working closely with the Authority for the last two months to design a unique research centre, enabling industry and academia to gain expertise in remote and autonomous handling techniques and opening up access to a multi-billion pounds worldwide market.
Bond Bryan Director Darren Southgate said, “We have thoroughly enjoyed putting this facility together with key members of the CCFE team; the abundance and variation of expertise in the UK is amazing!”
At the recent Global Manufacturing Festival hosted in the UK, Vince Cable stated that his government department wanted to leave a legacy of cross party agreement around how the UK will sustain its engineering revival through a business bank, new skills centres and research based activity, transforming blue sky thinking into commercial opportunities. The Culham Centre facility is part of this strategy.
