Description: The phased regeneration of the current nuclear core production facilities on the Rolls-Royce Site at Raynesway in Derby, the sustainment of the Core Production Capability (CPC) and the production, development and manufacture of the nuclear reactor cores to meet Pressurised Water Reactor 2 and Successor technical specifications.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: Significant risks to core production and the procurement of equipment for the new facilities remain. CPC remains sensitive to the outcome from the Post-Irradiated Examination inspections on the prototype nuclear reactor core of the type used in Vanguard and Astute submarines. Enhancements that ensure product quality is maximised have introduced cost increases affecting core production which will change the Delivery Confidence Assessment.
Start date: 2012-04-23
End date: 2028-11-14
Schedule text: Delivery of the regenerated facilities continues, although risks are materialising and affecting the programme. However, these risks are not on the critical path to deliver the first Successor core.
Baseline: £170.50m
Forecast: £158.13m
Variance: -7.26%
Variance text: Management action was taken to defer elements of cost to future years as part of responsible Departmental budget 'balancing' activities across the submarine portfolio.
Whole Life Cost: £1,443.46m
WLCost text: Cost review work is on-going to understand the full impact of the detection of low levels of radioactivity in the coolant for the H1 prototype core.
