A long term agreement brings SORALUCE into partnership with the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC) to push forward the development of manufacturing processes for civil nuclear and other innovative energy sectors.

The Nuclear AMRC was established in 2009 to combine the knowledge, practices and expertise of manufacturing companies with the capability of universities. It is led by the University of Sheffield with support from The University of Manchester Dalton Nuclear Institute. Over 40 companies have joined the Nuclear AMRC as members, from reactor providers and top-tier suppliers to providers of specialist equipment and services.
