What We Do
We have a dedicated team committed to providing expert radioactive waste services. These include:
Our team is well versed in safety case management and development, along with nuclear operations and transport management. We operate a large waste management facility, providing material handling, characterisation and waste processing, including:
We operate a secure storage facility where we are currently responsible for the safe management of over 95% of the UK’s uranic inventory, so the material is secured for the next 90 years. Our team ensures the contents of any material under our stewardship is protected, hazards are reduced, and materials remain safe for the duration of their storage. This includes a series of inspections of legacy cylinders, drums from Magnox fuel reprocessing and uranic materials from Urenco UK. We have in-house expertise of designing purpose-built facilities and developing bespoke management solutions, ranging from the treatment of materials to long term construction projects.
We provide waste-led decommissioning to the nuclear industry through experienced project management practices and waste-informed strategies. Our capabilities include:
We have a proven track record of successfully maintaining Nuclear Decommissioning Authority assets and developing strategies for managing a number of materials. Our engineering team supports all aspects of the business and helps to ensure that we maintain high standards in safety, quality and environmental performance. We deliver this through four major strands of work:
Delivering projects in a nuclear context
Addressing the industry's unique and nuanced complexities with creative and results-focused engineers who develop bespoke solutions where "one size fits all" is rarely appropriate.
Engineering experts manage the maintenance, performance improvement and decommissioning of our current plant assets, and can provide the same support to future operations at Capenhurst.
Engineering is embedded in the delivery of all operations, acting as the design authority and providing safety case support, and incorporates our intelligent customer capability.
Our team includes several Chartered Engineers from diverse backgrounds who possess knowledge and experience gained from many years working within the nuclear and other industries.
