Construction partner chosen for expansion work at Rolls Royce’s Raynesway site

Balfour Beatty has been chosen as a construction partner for the expansion work at Rolls Royce’s Raynesway site in Derby.

The expansion at the submarines site is needed to meet the growth in demand from the MOD and as a result of the AUKUS agreement.

In March 2023 it was confirmed that Rolls-Royce Submarines would provide all the nuclear reactor plants that will power new attack submarines as part of the tri-lateral agreement between Australia, the UK and US.

As part of the package of works, which will be executed in stages over the next eight years, Balfour Beatty will deliver infrastructure enabling works, build new manufacturing and office facilities, and redevelop existing industrial buildings on site.

This will increase Rolls-Royce’s capacity to manufacture reactor components for nuclear submarines.

The green light was given to Rolls-Royce’s expansion plans last month.
