Creating jobs and Brexports

Design, development and production of a UK SMR fleet has the potential to create up to 40,000 additional highly-skilled UK nuclear supply chain jobs between 2030 and 2050. These would be located largely outside of the South East around the sites of the new nuclear plants. Investment in a UK SMR programme effectively doubles the size of the UK nuclear industry within a period of 15 years, with enhanced levels of jobs generating greater technical expertise as compared to other reactor programmes.
