Thomas Thor are working in an exclusive partnership with newcleo to support their UK operational expansion and create the senior structure of their technical delivery team.
Privately funded and headquartered in London, newcleo was launched in 2021 to be a disruptor in the field of nuclear energy. Its mission is to generate safe, clean, economic and practically inexhaustible energy for the world, through a radically innovative combination of existing, accessible technologies. With visionary co-founders, newcleo capitalises on thirty years of R&D activity in metal-cooled fast reactors and liquid-lead cooling systems, and our senior management and advisory team can boast hundreds of years in cumulative hands-on experience.
newcleo’s technology, mostly comprising a novel approach to already qualified solutions, addresses equally well the three challenges affecting the nuclear industry to date: waste, safety and cost.
In the UK, newcleo’s immediate focus is on delivering a prototype 30MWe LFR by 2030 followed by an initial battery of 4-6 x 200MWe reactors with deployment planned for the early 2030s. We are also considering options for the manufacture and supply of MOX fuel. We are building our team to meet this challenging and exciting objective.
A fundamental aspect of newcleo’s mission is to close the fuel cycle, utilising MOX fuel generated from nuclear waste. The post holder will lead newcleo’s UK programme of innovation and development in this area with the aim of re-purposing UK nuclear materials to fuel newcleo’s UK LFR fleet and to utilise the the Pu burning capabilities of fast reactor technologies. Ultimately, we intend to fund and build a MOX manufacturing facility at a suitable site in the UK (e.g. Sellafield).
You will build strong relationships with key government and industry stakeholders to assess feasibility, influence policy and work seamlessly with colleagues in UK, France and Turin to identify and realise the optimum strategy and delivery approach in line with principles of safety, affordability, deliverability and in line with all UK regulatory requirements.
