The strategy for SZC is for most of the scope of Nuclear Island design replication activities to be lead and managed in the UK from the Bristol office. EPR-E work closely with the SZC designer teams in France and Germany.


As a Replication Lead in the Plant Integration (PI) team, you will be in charge of the SZC Replication processes, both Nuclear Services Agreement (NSA) and on behalf of the Employer, and the Intellectual Property management process ensuring their application over the Consortium for the provision of NSA activities.
