Nuclear

As the world strives towards decarbonization, whilst also coping with an insatiable hunger for electrical power, we need clean, reliable baseload to feed the growing needs of transport, heating, cooling and a connected population.

New nuclear is being embraced in many of the world’s nations and in a post-Fukushima world the industry must prove its safety credentials.  Pressure on developers and supply chain is unparalleled and the UK, given it’s stringent safety regulations, is seen as a proving ground for the new breed of plant. 

HVAC systems provide chilled water to various heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems in a nuclear facility,  including processes directly linked with the reactor island, so their safe and reliable operation is essential to the operation of a nuclear power plant.
