The Nuclear AMRC’s Fit For Nuclear (F4N) programme is now established as the benchmark for manufacturers wanting to win work in the nuclear supply chain.
F4N is a unique service to help manufacturing companies assess and develop their readiness to bid for work in the nuclear supply chain. Developed with the support of leading companies in new build and decommissioning, F4N lets companies measure their operations against the standards required to supply the nuclear industry and take the necessary steps to close any gaps.
Around 120 companies were granted F4N as of April 2020, collectively reporting a total of £75m of new nuclear contracts and £1.1bn non-nuclear contracts won.
Building on this success, the Nuclear AMRC is working with the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult to bring supply chain development to the wind sector. The Fit 4 Offshore Renewables (F4OR) collaboration was piloted in Scotland in 2019 and is set to deliver the targeted support needed to keep wind sector jobs in the UK.
