Nuclear New Build

Providing power for the future


With increasing climate change challenges, the shift to clean energy growth and the need to cut emissions to “net zero,” it’s time to think differently about tomorrow.

We're working with clients around the world on their nuclear new build programs – helping them provide a secure, low-carbon, large-scale energy supply for the future.

We’re part of a U.K. consortium developing a new type of smart, compact, modular nuclear power plant; and we’re a major contributor to ITER, the world’s largest fusion project based in Provence, France.

We helped design the first and second generation of the U.K.’s nuclear power plants (NPP). We’re providing diverse capability for current new build programs including EDF’s Hinkley Point C in the U.K. and the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation’s (ENEC) Barakah NPP program in Abu Dhabi.

Drawing on our extensive engineering design and construction management capabilities, and our global licensing, environmental and site hazard evaluation knowledge, our work with commercial and governmental clients has helped advance their civil nuclear new build programs.

In Action: Supporting EDF’s Hinkley Point C, Somerset, U.K.

The first new nuclear power station to be built in the U.K. in over 20 years, EDF’s Hinkley Point C in Somerset is expected to make a major contribution to the U.K.’s ambition to reduce carbon emissions. It will provide low-carbon electricity for around six million homes, create thousands of jobs and bring lasting benefits to the U.K. economy. Jacobs is supporting with wide-ranging professional technical and project management services and in a program delivery role.
