Our recent history in nuclear
KBR has been a part of the nuclear landscape since the 1970s where we were engaged in the delivery of the first generation of nuclear power plants in the US.
KBR has a strong track record of supporting nuclear programs in the UK including EDF Energy’s NNB Genco on the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station construction project in southwest England since 2016.
More recently, in 2020 KBR was selected to join a new multi-million-dollar delivery framework in a partnership with Assystem and Doosan Babcock operating under the name of KAD Nuclear supporting the delivery of a major UK naval infrastructure program through the Nuclear Technical Support Provider. Working collaboratively the partnership will provide integrated programme management to extend the design life of key facilities and maintain operations.
The framework supports the Clyde Infrastructure Programme and wider Royal Navy requirements, with its primary focus on deliver engineering and project management services for the naval base infrastructure upgrade and specialist nuclear technical services.
2021 saw KBR marking two years of a ground-breaking partnership with Sellafield Ltd - owned by the UK Government’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority - to act as one of its delivery partners on the Programme and Project Partners (PPP) major infrastructure program. KBR’s role as integrator on PPP means we lead a full suite of services across the partnership. Forming a world class team of teams with Sellafield Ltd and partner organisations to transform Sellafield from a nuclear operator into a world leader of environmental remediation.
Recently, KBR has acquired both Harmonic and the Frazer-Nash Consultancy. This expansion, along with organic growth, has allowed us to create a business of over 600 full-time employees in the sector.
