Rolls-Royce plans to run a mini-nuclear reactor, hiring a blitz after the government backed plans to build more than a dozen plants in Britain

The Rolls-Royce mini-nuclear reactor operation plans to hire a blitz after the government put its weight on plans to build more than a dozen plants in Britain.

The company’s “small modular reactor” engineer intends to hire 500 people over the next 12 months, 400 to join this year.

More than 150 employees are to be transferred from the parent company, which owns a 70 percent stake in Rolls-Royce SMR, bringing the workforce to about 700 people.

Boris Johnson supported the project and allocated grants of 210 million pounds to launch it. He also received support from the Qatar Investment Authority.

The company says that if it receives regulatory approval from the government by 2024, it could provide electricity to the UK grid by 2029.

SMRs can mostly be built in factories and assembled on site, making them cheaper and faster to assemble than traditional reactors.

Each will cover a field the size of two football fields and can provide food to a million homes.

Rolls-Royce SMR is compiling a list of locations for its first plant.

He received about 100 materials from the regions that offer to host the site.

A Rolls-Royce SMR spokesman said the recruitment “would create a legacy for future generations”.
