Big Rig

The Big Rig provides learners with hands on experience on a simulation evaporation Rig under the conditions found on a nuclear licensed site. Learners on the rig assemble commission and operate a mock-up of a real engineered system from the nuclear energy generation lifecycle, be it the primary loop from a new-build station or an evaporator unit from a processing plant.

This facility is the biggest training rig in the UK and is the only Rig created solely for the nuclear industry. We offer a range of experiential and accredited short courses on the rig covering areas such as:

  • Leadership, Team Leading and Project Management
  • Health and Safety and Human Performance
  • Team working and communications
  • Team Building
  • Graduate and Apprentice Training
  • Cost Estimation and planning
  • Work Experience
