Nuclear energy

Specialist logistics for nuclear power projects demand meticulous planning. In every phase of a project, rigorous standards and integrated layers of safety, quality and risk management are essential – and Osprey has the experience to support you in the pre-construction, new build, or decommissioning of nuclear power stations.

These sites are usually located near the coast for easy access to cooling water. With our marine expertise, we’ve found innovative ways to transport large, critical items to these sites using inland waterways and near-shore facilities – we’ve been delivering project-critical equipment for over 10 years.

Today, for example, we’re proud to be recognised by EDF as a trusted part of their supply chain – the business expects around 64% of Hinkley Point C’s construction costs to be spent in the UK, and we’re a British firm through and through. You can read more about Osprey’s work with Hinkley here.

At the same time, we’ve been adding value to our clients’ projects, sharing our nuclear logistics expertise in support of new builds that are in the planning stage. The learnings we’re capturing now will also deliver efficiencies for the next generation of nuclear power stations, such as Sizewell C, Bradwell B and Wylfa.

We’re looking forward to the future too. Our world needs more low-carbon power than ever before. The development of Small Modular Reactors will provide much of that additional capacity – and we also have the experience to help shape those modular construction logistics.
