newcleo is a clean and safe nuclear technology company. Privately funded and headquartered in London, UK, newcleo was launched in 2021 to be a disruptor in the field of nuclear energy. Its mission is to generate safe, clean, economic and inexhaustible energy for the world, through a radically innovative combination of existing, accessible technologies.

newcleo is building the next generation system with the goals to:

  1. eliminate the need for geological repositories by using a fast neutron flux avoiding the production of long life radioactive elements;
  2. accelerate the development of new fuel cycles, including MOX (Mixed Pu-U Oxides) and eventually thorium, that provide clean, safe and inexhaustible energy from nuclei and the opportunity to burn the long-lived nuclear waste produced by the old generation of nuclear reactors;
  3. ultimately develop an Accelerator Driven System (ADS), based on the intrinsically safe coupling of a particle accelerator and a sub-critical reactor.

With visionary co-founders, newcleo brings together an international team of senior engineers with deep knowledge of nuclear energy and new recruits with a fresh mindset, working to develop designs based on innovative Lead-cooled Fast Reactors (LFRs). These LFRs will meet the commercial demand for small terrestrial waste-to-energy reactors.

In the UK, newcleo’s immediate focus is on delivering a prototype 30MWe LFR by 2030 followed by an initial battery of 4-6 x 200MWe reactors with deployment in the early 2030s. We are building our team to meet this challenging and exciting objective.

newcleo wants to be the first step toward the evolution of its industry to become fully respectful of people and the environment. To develop a new, sustainable, and completely safe way of generating nuclear energy that will lead humanity to zero emissions, and to the mitigation of global warming.

Job Description

This is a role within the newcleo’s Engineering team, reporting Mechanical Design Coordinator and based in Turin.

He/She will be in charge of creation, integration and optimisation of mechanical 3D CAD models for the design and construction phases of small modular nuclear reactors (SMR) and BIM 3D CAD models for systems and services of the infrastructure of a nuclear power system.

Main Responsibilities

  • Make preliminary or detailed technical design studies using a 3D computer-aided design (CAD) system
  • Create and manage the evolution of the 3D model of all the mechanical components of a nuclear reactor
  • Create and manage the evolution of the 3D model of all the systems (piping, heat exchangers, cable trays, pumps, turbines, etc.) of a nuclear power station
  • Have daily contacts with the design engineers to support the evolution of the components and systems design
  • Exchange the 3D models in formats to be shared with the main structural and fluid dynamics simulation software
  • Contribute in preparing technical specifications, and call-for-tender documentsrk

Desired Qualifications

  • Higher technical diploma in the field of mechanics or electro-mechanics or a related field; BSc degree is an asset.
  • Spoken and written English; ability to understand and speak the Italian in professional contexts or engagement to learn it fast.
  • Experience in the use of CAD tools;
  • At least five three of experience in the creation, and management of complex 3D CAD models for mechanical assembly using CATIA or Solidworks
  • Or at least five three of experience in the creation, and management of complex 3D CAD models for process systems using AutoCad 3D or Revit
  • Demonstrated competence in use of Product Document Management tools.
