    Bechtel supports opening of UK Future Nuclear Enabling Fund


    May 16, 2022 - ENP Newswire

     

      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.'

      Bechtel is currently completing construction of the only new nuclear power plant under construction in the United States, is serving as the engineering, procurement, and construction partner with TerraPower for the Natrium advanced reactor demonstration plant in the state of Wyoming, and is engaged in front-end engineering and design of a new nuclear plant in Poland, which would be that nation's first-ever.
