Bechtel, a trusted engineering, construction, and project management partner to the global nuclear industry for nearly 70 years, today applauded the opening of the UK Future Enabling Fund, a GBP120 million fund to boost cutting-edge nuclear projects supporting the recently announced British Energy Security Strategy.
'The UK is showing visionary leadership by stimulating competition, research, and development of new nuclear projects in Britain,' said Ahmet Tokpinar, general manager of Bechtel's nuclear power business. 'We are committed to facilitating the achievement of the net-zero targets set by UK government at pace and scale, and we look forward to engaging in the Expression of Interest process on one or more projects.'
