Nuclear Power Delivery UK has signed a round of Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with three supply chain partners to deploy the Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear reactor in the UK.

The three supply chain partners are BAE Systems, Doosan Power Systems and Rolls-Royce.

The agreements are built on earlier MoUs that was signed in 2008, which had since expired.

Nuclear Power Delivery UK managing director, Rita Bowser said that the work performed under the earlier MoUs sets the basis for more detailed collaboration as the partnership moves forward.

"The fact we are now doing this as Nuclear Power Delivery UK means we can bring a clearer team focus to where these major organizations can support us, and allows us all to look at how we can best work together to bring the AP1000 nuclear plant for UK customers as reliably and cost-effectively as possible," Bowser said.

Nuclear Power Delivery UK is a consortium established by Westinghouse to supply the AP1000 reactor to UK customers.
