Project to identify CO2 coolant benefits

Derbyshire-based Nuclear Energy Components (NEC) is starting work with the Nuclear AMRC to develop environmentally-friendly machining techniques which will reduce the cost, lead time and risk associated with high-value nuclear components.

The project is funded by the UK government’s Nuclear Innovation Programme, and is part of the £40m investment in advanced nuclear technologies announced in July. The new year-long project, called ‘Process Improvement Through CO2 Cooling’ (PITCO2C), will develop the technology to take it closer to production for 316L stainless steel components.
