• Hyder acquires nuclear safety consultancy

    ​Hyder Consulting, a leading multi-national design and engineering consultancy, has acquired SR³C, an independent nuclear safety business.

    The move is the latest strategic acquisition by Hyder Consulting as part of its rapid growth in the energy sector. Previous UK acquisitions in the last three years have added major hazards safety and reliability and power systems study capabilities to Hyder’s list of specialist services.

    The combined business has established clients in the nuclear, oil and gas, renewables, transmission and distribution, and defence sectors, including EDF Energy, Babcock Marine, AWE, National Grid, Scottish Power, Vattenfall and a wide range of international oil and gas companies.

    SR³C’s specialist consultants will work side by side with Hyder’s employees serving the energy, utilities, highways, rail and property sectors around the world.

    SR³C has proven capabilities in nuclear safety case development, radiological support, human factors analysis, design substantiation and environmental support. The new areas of expertise significantly enhance Hyder’s existing nuclear design, engineering and advisory offering and enable Hyder to advise clients across the whole life cycle of their nuclear facilities.

    Ivor Catto, Chief Executive of Hyder Consulting said: “We are committed to growth that provides enhanced support to current and future clients in the nuclear industry. SR³C is an excellent fit in terms of culture, capability and geography. I am delighted that they have become a part of the Hyder Consulting group at a very exciting stage in our development.

    John Sawyer, one of SR³C’s founders said: “Being part of an organisation with Hyder’s breadth of capabilities allows us to offer clients a comprehensive and integrated range of services. It also provides our consultants with enhanced career development opportunities in new sectors and geographies. I really feel that this is an excellent development for all concerned”.
