Minister Andrea Leadsom Visits Preston Laboratory

NNL welcomed Minister of State at the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) Andrea Leadsom to the Preston Laboratory yesterday (Thursday 19th May).

She toured the facility meeting plant personnel and learning about the different aspects of NNL’s commercial business and Government support role. The Minister also had the opportunity to meet and talk to apprentices, technicians and graduates. During a Q+A session, the Minister noted that she was impressed with the range of activities undertaken in the Preston Laboratory and by NNL as a whole. 

She is pictured below holding a uranium fuel pellet manufactured at our Preston Laboratory. We manufacture pellets like this to help our customer ensure quality assurance across their nuclear fuel manufacturing process.
