Phase II of NCC Development Receives Government Funding

The National Composites Centre in Bristol is to receive a £28 million investment from the Government to fund further developments, bringing the total funding to over £40 million.

The NCC, which opened in November of last year, is owned by the University of Bristol and is playing an integral part in the development of the next generation of renewable energy devices.

Part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, the NCC intends to enhance the facilities it already has, using the investment to build an extension housing a high speed composite manufacturing technology department, and also a world-class training facility. This is seen as an investment in the future development of composite technologies.

Chief Executive of the NCC, Peter Chivers, has described the proposed extension as, "fundamental in allowing the UK to remain competitive in this rapidly growing global market."

The new building is projected to be completed in the first half of 2014.
