How working arrangements at the UK Atomic Energy Authority are changing due to the coronavirus.

In line with current guidance, the UK Atomic Energy Authority has now suspended all but essential on-site operations at Culham, and has asked all staff not involved in that activity to work at home. UKAEA has remote access systems that should allow other work to continue.

UKAEA is acting now to support suppliers so we can ensure service continuity during and after the current COVID-19 outbreak. This will enable all suppliers to be better able to cope with the current crisis; to resume service delivery and fulfil their contractual obligations when the outbreak is over. Please refer to this link.

Please contact UKAEA procurement team for any further advice or assistance:

Please note that, as you would expect in the circumstances, all events on site, including public open evenings and educational tours, are cancelled until further notice. For more guidance and contact details on this, please see the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy visits page.

We will issue further updates when the situation changes.
