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): Red
DCA text: The ‘Red’ Delivery Confidence Assessment is due to a Forecast Cost to Completion (FCAC) in respect of the original Scope of Work, which is predicted to exceed the original Main Gate Approval by some £250M. Recognising that the additional Core H Re-fuel and Resilience (CHRaR) scope of work, which (including an amended FOC of 15 May 2028) received a later separate approval, is currently forecasting below its approval, the combined FCAC is circa £235M above the single combined approval. Approval will be sought mid-2017 for the increased spend, giving the programme stability and a more appropriate commercial strategy.
Start date: 2012-04-01
End date: 2028-05-15
Schedule text: The original baseline project closure (end date), expected Regeneration of the production facilities at Rolls-Royce Raynesway to be complete by 19/03/2023. When the Business Case for an additional core (Core H Re-fuel and Resilience - CHRaR) was approved, it became necessary to defer some Regeneration activities for circa 5 years (date at approval – date now). This deferment is not on the critical path to deliver H cores, or the first Dreadnought core.
Baseline: £197.36m
Forecast: £197.20m
Variance: 0.00%
Variance text: Budget Variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £1,700.07m
WLCost text: A re-baselining of the CPC programme has been endorsed by the IAC. This will ensure that the project has a more robust bases of cost estimates, is aligned to the latest programme and has a more appropriate approvals and commercial strategy. The conclusions of the re-baselining work are scheduled to report back to the iAC in mid-2017.
