Description: To maintain a naval reactor Core Production Capability (CPC) to support the UK’s nuclear submarine flotilla. All Royal Navy submarine propulsion nuclear reactor cores have been manufactured at the Rolls-Royce (RR) Raynesway site. To conduct nuclear operations on the Raynesway Site, Rolls-Royce Marine Power Operations Limited is ‘Licensed’ by the Office of Nuclear Regulation as required by the Nuclear Installations Act. The technological and manufacturing capability to produce submarine reactor cores has traditionally been sustained through successive contracts for their production. With the introduction of long life cores and the reduction in the submarine flotilla size the numerical requirement for cores has reduced. This project sustains the production capability and optimises the production of future long life cores.
DCA (RAG): Green

Start date: 2012-04-01
End date: 2023-03-19
Schedule text: Project Schedule dates (@50% Confidence) will undergo a rebaselining in April 2013. The current baseline data was supplied in Main Gate Submission in June 2011, and rebaseline will reflect contract placement in April 2012. The rebaselining will not change contract delivery dates.
Baseline: £115.00m
Forecast: £75.00m
Variance: -34.78%
Variance text: This in-year delta between spend and control total arose as a result of a later than originally planned placement of the CPC contract.  This was due to the extended negotiations in order to achieve a satisfactory commercial position for MoD and a Departmental Approval (a pre-requisite for Investment Approvals Committee approval at Main Gate.)  Therefore, only a proportion of the work included when the £115m budget was set has been able to be completed in this financial year as planned.  At present, this cannot be claimed as an overall saving to the project but is a re-profile of the project spend. The background is as follows: It is expected that, as part of the Submarine Enterprise Performance Programme, real savings will be delivered through this project.  The first of these will be declared through Annual Budget Cycle (ABC)13 but it is too early now, at the start of this major ten year contract to be certain about the total quantum of project savings.  This will largely be determined by the Project’s ability to manage the most important risks in a consistently successful manner to project completion.
