UK Atomic Energy Authority includes Demcon in framework to help develop fusion energy.


The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) has renewed its multimillion-pound Engineering Design Services Framework. Demcon was not part of the original framework but has now been included in the tender alongside nine other companies. The renewal is based on a successful four-year delivery of various engineering and design desk-based projects.




The Framework, with a value up to £9m, supports the development of a UK industrial supply chain capability by allowing the companies to work closely with UKAEA as it undertakes fusion energy research. The project aims to develop commercial fusion energy, while also contributing to the growth of the UK economy by working closely with industry.

Colette Broadwith, Strategic Procurement Business Partner for UKAEA, said: “This framework has enabled UKAEA to work collaboratively and with maximum efficiency with the fusion supply chain. By renewing it for another four years, UKAEA can continue to leverage the engineering and technical expertise of our industrial partners to help accelerate fusion energy’s commercialization, for the benefit of all.”

There are ongoing opportunities to collaborate and especially to utilize the supply chain in many of the initiatives. The companies which are part of the renewed framework are: Assystem, AtkinsRealis, Demcon, Eadon, Frazer Nash, IDOM, Jacobs, M5tec and Optima.
