Nuclear energy

Bringing together integrated teams from multiple technical business units into one seamless solution, we will support you through every stage of your nuclear build and decommissioning cycle. BGEN provides a wide range of services to the existing and new-build nuclear power station market.

We have a well-referenced portfolio of expertise and experience in delivering mechanical, electrical and instrumentation services to a diverse range of technically sophisticated nuclear projects. We have the in-house capabilities to provide turnkey mechanical and electrical solutions for cost-effective new build, plant life-extension and decommissioning solutions.

Our experienced nuclear project managers will manage and co-ordinate your entire project, integrating technical services into one complete package and managing the demands of working within a nuclear environment – including dosimetry, safety and security requirements. And our SQEP teams have all been fully trained in radiological protection and approved via the relevant security channels. Health & safety, security and dosimetry are all managed by us in-house; where required, we can also provide design and engineering support.

Nuclear plant services

We will deliver all necessary aspects of your nuclear project, including detailed engineering, project management, design, fabrication, installation, test and inspection, and commissioning – either as an integrated multi-disciplined scheme or on a single-discipline basis:

  • Civil engineering and construction
  • Electrical and instrumentation services
  • Mechanical and process (including pipework)
  • Mechanical fabrications
  • Modular construction
  • High-integrity pipework systems.

Procurement for nuclear projects

  • Supply chain management
  • Competitive tendering
  • Collaborative agreements
  • Risk mitigation and reduction
  • Inspection and expediting.

Construction management for nuclear projects

  • Management of subcontractors
  • Principal contractor role.

Nuclear new build

With global economies looking for low-carbon energy solutions, there is an increasing awareness of the benefits of nuclear power. As a result, the demand for new nuclear facilities is increasing rapidly. We provide high-quality, technically focused support for the nuclear power station new-build programme, delivering reliable, safe and cost-effective engineering solutions for all nuclear facilities.

Nuclear plant life extension

We have over 10 years’ experience of extending the life of nuclear plants, with a solid understanding of nuclear assets, their operating systems, and nuclear engineering. By applying technical improvements, safety upgrades and other modifications, we have delivered plant modifications and upgrades to meet increasingly stringent safety standards and regulatory challenges.

Offering the full scope of design and build services for mechanical, electrical and instrumentation schemes, we will work closely with you to deliver an innovative solution (such as using HDPE pipework systems).


The industry’s legacy fleet of nuclear facilities presents huge technical challenges, particularly with ponds and silos. BGEN can provide both technical assistance and manpower for resolving many nuclear material retrieval challenges.

Working directly for our client, or for other Tier 1 framework suppliers as nominated subcontractors, BGEN provides reliable mechanical, electrical and instrumentation support to the decommissioning sector. We have highly skilled and productive site teams who work on a number of schemes within varied commercial frameworks.

We offer a full range of mechanical, electrical and instrumentation services to the nuclear decommissioning sector, including off-site PAU/module build in support of site services. We also supply fully designed and manufactured electrical distribution solutions on a containerised basis.
