TÜV SÜD Nuclear Technologies are leading the alliance whose core members are TÜV SÜD, Capgemini, GRS and Corporate Risk Associates Ltd (CRA). BakerHicks are one of a number of additional companies who will provide specialist support to the ATLAS Alliance, bringing additional capacity and strengthening the capability offered by the core companies during the framework agreement.
The group consists of a highly experienced network of professionals whose careers have revolved around nuclear safety, assurance and the establishment of a nuclear safety culture across the entire nuclear lifecycle from new build through to decommissioning. TÜV SÜD staff have the role of Technical Lead in a range of areas including:
Leadership and Management of Safety
Radiological Protection & Emergency Preparedness
Radwaste Management & Decommissioning
The Alliance also covers other engineering and technical services such as:
Control and Instrumentation
Probabilistic Safety Assessment
BakerHicks will support with the provision of electrical, control and instrumentation, mechanical, structural and process engineering, alongside BIM and digital solutions.
Each of the four core members of the ATLAS Alliance have long standing relationships with the ONR and have been involved in projects in support of the ONR through the previous framework arrangement that delivered approximately £4M worth of technical support to the ONR.
Dr Karen Hildred at TÜV SÜD said:
The award of this Framework shows that ONR have confidence and trust in our technical capabilities and ability to deliver complex technical services to a high standard. This is a great achievement for TÜV SÜD and gives us the chance to collaborate with the other consortium members in ensuring the safety and security of the UK nuclear industry.
