Advanced Nuclear Research Centre launch in Strathclyde

Representatives from Servelec Controls Power and Nuclear attended the opening of the Advanced Nuclear Research Centre at the University of Strathclyde’s Technology and Innovation Centre this week.

Managing Director Alex Moore and Account Director Stuart Harrison were invited guests as the Centre was officially opened by the Chair of the Nuclear Industry Association Lord Hutton. The University’s Principal and Vice Chancellor, Sir Jim McDonald also addressed the audience, alongside Duncan Hawthorne, Chair of the World Association of Nuclear Operators.

The ANRC will provide a focus for all of the University’s research activities which impact on the nuclear industry covering fundamental research, the design of new facilities and decommissioning of existing plants.

Alex Moore commented: “This is another excellent step forward both for the University and the nuclear industry as a whole. To have world class research facilities on the doorstop of our Glasgow office is extremely exciting and we are looking forward to building on the excellent links we already have with the University.”

The £90m Technology and Innovation Centre was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in July and is also home to research centres for energy, manufacturing, future cities and health.
