Nuclear reactor plants have a long lifetime. The Royal Navy's latest submarine reactors, designed and built by Rolls-Royce, will last the vessels' full operational life without the need for refuelling. This means they require a number of key support activities throughout their time in service - from delivery to final disposal.
Among the key services provided are:
- In-situ repair and maintenance of reactor plant.
- Transport of nuclear fuel.
- Design and supply of high-integrity fuel handling equipment.
- Dynamic stress analysis.
