Oxford Sigma supplies specialist engineering services to support the UK Office for Nuclear Regulation

29 Nov 2022 | News

Oxford Sigma is providing specialist engineering services as a Tier 2 supplier on the new Technical Services framework with the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) for the next four years with Frazer Nash Consultancy. The ONR is the regulator for the nuclear industry in the UK, and is recognised internationally for nuclear best practice. With 35 licensed nuclear sites in Great Britain, the ONR’s mission is to protect society by securing safe nuclear operations.

The framework will provide ONR with the means to procure technical services and research to support its capacity, in light of growing regulatory demands. The framework will also support ONR’s capabilities in certain niche skill areas which are not held within the organisation.

With this position, Oxford Sigma is continuing its supply of specialised engineering services to ONR. In particular, Oxford Sigma will provide expertise in Advanced Modular Reactors nuclear design, nuclear safety engineering, structural integrity, materials engineering and innovation.

“We welcome our continued collaboration with Frazer-Nash Consultancy by providing specialized engineering services to the ONR in support of such projects as the Generic Design Assessments (GDAs) of future nuclear reactors. We are integrating our unique extreme materials and engineering design skills within the UK nuclear sector to support the framework.”
