Enabling the Extraordinary To Fly To Power To Live

Specialised Nuclear Manufacturing

 

Through more than 30+ years of working in high-end manufacturing and fabrication, Heatric has developed comprehensive systems and facilities that are well-positioned to support manufacturing projects in nuclear industries. The company has previously worked on a number of projects in the nuclear sector, including the development of heat exchangers for use in high temperature reactors and in sodium fast breed reactors (such as the ASTRID project in France).

Heatric’s accreditation and expertise makes it particularly well-suited to the manufacture and supply of products for nuclear waste containment. By leveraging the potential of its proprietary diffusion bonding processes Heatric has developed working partnerships with a number of companies in this area.

The critical safety and process considerations of the nuclear industry demand equipment and suppliers capable of meeting exacting requirements. The requirements of the oil & gas industry, although varied somewhat, are well aligned with those in the nuclear equipment market. Heatric’s expertise in supplying to oil & gas companies makes it well suited to the nuclear sector.

In 2017 Heatric achieved the following standards and certification:

  • Fit for Nuclear (F4N) – a programme developed by the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (NAMRC) for suppliers to measure how well aligned they are with the needs of the nuclear industry. The process enables suppliers to identify gaps in their processes and put in place actions to close them. Although this process typically takes suppliers 12-18 months to complete, Heatric completed it in less than 6 months.
  • National Skills Academy Nuclear (NSAN) Triple Bar training – a comprehensive training programme that covers ‘…the requirements for compliance, nuclear awareness and industry behaviours for safe working in the nuclear industry.’ The programme is broken into 3 layers (or ‘bars’) and details a number of key areas that suppliers must be familiar with to work in the nuclear industry.
  • Nuclear Industry Association (NIA) membership – as the trade association for the UK’s civil nuclear industry, NIA membership facilitates interaction between companies across the spectrum of the nuclear industry. The NIA supports companies in the nuclear sector through exhibitions, conferences and newsletters.

Heatric continues to develop its potential in nuclear fields and explore new opportunities for the company. To discuss your project and to understand how Heatric can help you meet your challenges, send a message directly through the enquiry page or contact Heatric on:
