Nuclear & Power

Brilliantly engineering a cleaner, safer Net Zero world

We are collaborative and specialist teams, operating end to end on nuclear facilities across the globe.

We have decades of work in the pipeline - engineering, delivering, managing and decommissioning - on projects including new builds like Hinkley Point C and Sizewell C, and working alongside organizations including EDF, Magnox and Rolls Royce.

Together, we're driving evolution in offshore generation and transmission, energy from waste, electric vehicle infrastructure and the integration of smart grid technology. And we're also proud to play a part in reaching Net Zero by 2050.

We all recognize that it is more than just a job. It's about the impact we can make to improve our world and keep everyone safe. It's about making the complex simple and the delivering on our vision every day.

And in doing so, we are creating plenty of challenging opportunities to grow your career and propel you towards leadership.

Core UK teams


AtkinsRéalis’ Reactor Operations & Decommissioning (RO&D) team keep the nation's lights on by solving complex engineering challenges across the lifetime of nuclear reactors - from power generation to de-fuelling and sustainable decommissioning.

For you, this means unrivalled opportunities to develop your career by joining a considerable variety of projects across the asset lifetime.

We provide fully integrated engineering and project management services for all power-generating nuclear facilities in the UK, and are growing rapidly with an increasing portfolio of significant projects including support to new-build on Rolls-Royce's submarine fleets, civil generating stations alongside EDF, or end-of-lifecycle in partnership with Magnox.

Our exciting portfolio of work covers both Nuclear Fission and Fusion new build projects which are a critical component in achieving our carbon net zero targets. We apply multi-discipline AtkinsRéalis skills across the whole project lifecycle, from initiation all the way through to commissioning and commercial operation.

We’re incredibly proud that we’re recognised as a key and trusted component of the nuclear new build industry through delivering engineering and project expertize through our brilliant workforce.

Everyone working in this team is making a huge impact on carbon net zero. Together, we’re strengthening the UK’s nuclear capacity as well as driving innovation in renewables. Our shared commitment to achieving CNZ targets in the UK brings us all together; we're visibly and actively engineering a better future.

When a nuclear site reaches retirement, our specialist teams are uniquely equipped to provide 360 services – from strategic advice to operations and full product delivery.

Our global waste management capabilities connect people, data and technology to provide cutting-edge tools, robotic solutions and treatment techniques for all types of waste, essentially removing the risk to humans in that space. We routinely manage waste for the UK, US and Canadian Governments. Fundamental to our capability is strong technical knowledge and broad experience within the nuclear industry.

In the UK our teams are based in Whitehaven and Warrington - and comprise Civil and Structural, Mechnical, and EC&I Engineers delivering solutions to technically complex problems; alongside the capabilities of our specialist and expert project and engineering management teams.


Since 2007, our Nuclear & Power Global Technology Centre (GTC) team based in India, has delivered projects for the UK Civil Nuclear, Power Generations, Transmission & Distribution and Renewables businesses. The GTC team comes with a strong previous experience in Nuclear Safety, Operation & Commissioning, Process Design, Mechanical Design & Analysis, Piping Design, Control & Instrumentation Design, and Electrical Networks System Design of the Nuclear Power Plants and Conventional Utilities.

Our greatest strength is our hands-on experience, which enables us to seamlessly collaborate with our global colleagues to deliver projects.
