Sarah Champion welcomes announcement of UKEA investment in Rotherham facility

 I am delighted to welcome the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) to Rotherham and be part of their launch ceremony. UKAEA has announced the development next year of a £22m facility at Rotherham’s Advanced Manufacturing Park. The facility, which will conduct World leading research on fusion energy.  This is the latest in a string of major developments at the Park, confirming the site’s reputation as the leading venue for research, development and manufacturing.


Rotherham, and the skills, creativity and expertise we can provide, are now firmly established on the international stage. With McLaren, Rolls Royce, Boeing and many others already based at the AMP, the future is bright for both the AMP and our local economy. I look forward to welcoming many more organisations to Rotherham in forthcoming years.
