Supply chain pumps up for SMR market

Pump and motor manufacturer Hayward Tyler is working with the Nuclear AMRC on the development of a new coolant pump for small modular reactors (SMRs), while simultaneously helping the UK supply chain prepare for the production of critical components needed by the global SMR market. The government-funded project will focus on developing a class-leading reactor coolant pump, and strengthening the UK supply chain to provide long-term growth opportunities for the production of nuclear parts.

Nuclear AMRC engineers will work with Hayward Tyler on design-for-manufacture, to make sure that components and assemblies offer optimal performance and can benefit from efficient production to the quality standards demanded by nuclear customers. The project is funded by the Driving the Electric Revolution programme of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.
