The Process

ExplanatoryNotes: Visualisations of the Nuclear AMRC ‘full order winning process’. This embraces engagement(s) with major Utilities, Package Owners and Tier 1’s / 2’s. The cycle address targeting of potential Supply Chain members and their alignment to potential Vendor needs, have completed F4N gap-analysis improvement activities. The process outcome in terms of success can be measured by Supply Chain member pre-qualifications and or tendering opportunities being secured. Ultimate success remains that of realisation of the order (the win).

Explanatory Notes: A high level overview of how a typical, but generic, plant cost is made up. In a positive sense it demonstrates two key areas: those of equipment and site construction, where UK manufacturing and construction Supply Chains can add real value and where opportunities will exist.

Explanatory Notes: A lower level view of how equipment cost is made up and as with the previous slide (4) visualises where major spend areas are. In terms of major equipment ‘heavy component’ costs it is an area where substantial elements will be through non-UK Supply Chain members, certainly in the case of early UK plant builds (plants 1, 2 and 3).

This is subject to change, and awaits programme clarification following the sale of Horizon, and NuGen’s reactor technology choice. Construction and commissioning timescales as well as sequencing between builds likely to change.

  • Buyer Engagement

Explanatory Notes: A pictorial view of what a typical, EPR, plant in terms of the key buildings and their descriptions. UK manufacturing Supply Chain opportunities will exist in buildings 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6. There may be limited opportunities in the Turbine Building for U.K supply. The Nuclear AMRC’s Supply Chain work is focusing on matching Suppliers to potential Customers expected to deliver equipment’s in these areas.

Explanatory Notes: Takes examples of key nuclear systems, to key sub-system detail, all derived from the published EPR pre-construction safety reports (PCSR). Here examples of components and or products that can be found in these systems can be seen. Supply Chain opportunities will come from working with key organisations who operate at the Tier 1-2 level, examples of which will be explained later in this material set.

defining component quality requirements
Defining Component Quality Requirements
  • Buyer Engagement
  • We are mapping components within various systems
  • Then, mapping each component against quality requirements, within systems (eg, ISO9001, PED, ASME III, RCC-M Class 1-3, etc.)
  • Support/information from utilities and reactor vendors required

Explanatory Notes: Provides a high level view of quality systems and standards, and demonstrates how RCC-M levels can be read across to other standards including ASME and European ISO standards. Major suppliers such as and AREVA and other Tier 1’s are expected to deliver further training of quality standards and levels for organisations supporting their Supply Chain activities. The Nuclear AMRC will be facilitating and developing this training with AREVA and will be working with EDF to provide similar guidance over the months ahead.

Today there is no confirmed definition of the applicable standard to be adopted for UK build programmes (ASME or RCC-M). It should be recognised that there are different quality standards for different parts of the plant. The requirements will be identified in the RFQ’s. This may still be subject to variation as programme requirements develop.

example purchasing strategy commodity component matrix
Example Purchasing Strategy(Commodity / Component Matrix)
  • Buyer Engagement

Explanatory Notes: Green typically denotes an activity with the product. The commodity matrix example shown provides an insight into the product-component mapping work undertaken by the Nuclear AMRC. This can be obtained by working through published plant systems to create theoretic material take-off data to help understand the market opportunities. The Nuclear AMRC uses this area to match Supply Chain members to potential opportunities. Collaborating with the Nuclear AMRC will benefit UK Supply Chain members in areas of component and product opportunities.


Explanatory Notes: Demonstrates to steps used by the Nuclear AMRC, across the UK Supply Chain and industrial base, to identify and help develop sector members such that they can succeed through to selection and order winning phases.


Supplier Identification

  • c700 companies identified
  • Prioritise target list of companies according to timeline, capability and ambition
  • Mapped by region, components, etc.

Explanatory Notes:The Nuclear AMRC has identified potential UK Supply Chain who could participate in nuclear programmes. The landscape covers sub-sectors, from new-build to operation and through the decommissioning. The map provides a view of geographic locations and clusters of industrial manufacturing engineering expertise. Today this map embraces over 700 Supply Chain members including organisations form sectors such as Oil and Gas, Off-shore Wind, Pharmaceutical and Process Engineering and, more. This industrial landscape employs over 70,000 people in a variety of jobs across the UK.


Explanatory Notes: An outline of the key steps under the Nuclear AMRC’s ‘Fit for Nuclear’ (F4N) programme which is geared towards preparing interested organisations for potential market entry the diagnostic activities and self-managed improvement plans.

Supplier Engagement

Supplier Engagement

Explanatory Notes: Provide a step-by-step walk through the F4N process with a clear outcome of potential recommendation to Nuclear clients, and improved envisaged success rate. The steps are supported by a robust Nuclear AMRC process that seeks to ensure that organisations going through the programme are provided with continual guidance and beneficial advice regardless of their size and or capability offering. Through the programme Suppliers will be guided towards beneficial training programmes and or recommended contacts for direct follow-up and continued development.


Explanatory Notes: Outlines the steps which can lead to technology developments, in manufacturing and potential order winning improvements as a result. This is where working alongside the Nuclear AMRC as a potential member on a multitude of projects gear towards Supply Chain business could lead to a transformation of specific business capabilities efficiencies and future offering.

  • Workstreams tailored to meet the individual needs of the suppliers

Explanatory Notes: Demonstrates the steps toward matching Supply Chain members and ultimately order winning. These steps cover a multitude of opportunities and potential options for UK Supply Chain members to consider and or directly pursue. This not only includes working with UK Clients but also the potential of forming relationships / alliances with potential European partners.
