As part of Urenco’s commitment to supporting STEM education, Urenco Nuclear Stewardship has been working with a group of engineering master’s degree students and their tutors from Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU).
The university has been assisting Urenco Nuclear Stewardship to update our Asset Management Model for legacy cylinders. The model is used to determine which cylinders should be prioritised for replacement and needed to be refined to account for changes in environmental conditions, for example temperature and humidity. LJMU also helped to make the model more user friendly so it can be maintained in-house in the future.
Dave Nelligan, Managing Director of Urenco Nuclear Stewardship, said: “The students produced an excellent and workable model that will be of great benefit to Urenco Nuclear Stewardship and we have been very impressed with their professional manner and excellent report, presentation and training video. We would like to thank LJMU for their support and look forward to working with them on future projects.”
