Nuclear energy specialist AREVA expands into Warrington business park
The nuclear hub at MEPC Birchwood Park has been boosted by the arrival of nuclear energy specialist, AREVA.
AREVA has joined fellow nuclear businesses based at the Park, based in Warrington, through the relocation of its specialist Consultancy arm (AREVA RMC) which specialises in safety assessment, waste management and decommissioning support and advice.
AREVA will move into larger award-winning premises designed by the BDP architecture firm.
Speaking about the decision to move, AREVA RMC’s business relationship manager, Alison Holt, commented: “Birchwood Park has outstanding facilities and is conveniently located near many of our clients and partners, making it an ideal location to expand our business.”
Andrew Cowell, commercial director at MEPC Birchwood Park, said: “We’d like to extend a warm welcome to everyone at AREVA”.
“Birchwood Park has built a sterling reputation within the nuclear sector over the years and it’s fantastic that we’re able to draw companies of this size and stature onto the Park. We’re looking forward to supporting AREVA RMC in its bid for growth.”
AREVA is a world leader in nuclear power and covers every stage of the nuclear fuel cycle, reactor design and construction, and operating services. The group also develops a portfolio of activities in renewable energy.
In the United Kingdom, AREVA has been a key partner for the nuclear industry over the past three decades and is notably part of the Hinkley Point C nuclear new build project.
