Within the nuclear industry there are ongoing operational challenges and potential hazards associated with environmental emissions and the protection of the workforce, such as high temperatures, high radioactivity, high solids loads and chemically aggressive environments. Therefore the industry demands exceptional levels of technical expertise and quality, in conjunction with specific skills to solve many of its most intractable problems.
The MRP Modular Barrier System has been extensively used at nuclear power stations and decommissioning sites. In the UK the MRP Barrier has been used at a number of nuclear sites to provide shielded storage areas for waste in drums and ISO containers; temporary walls during maintenance operations and refurbishment of cell windows. The MRP Shield has been deployed at Hunterston, Sizewell, Berkeley, Oldbury and Hinkley power stations and at Sellafield and Dounreay.
The continuing establishment of nuclear power stations around the world pose unique environmental challenges for their operators. Ecotech provides air samplers to nuclear power plants for sampling of radionuclides.
A nuclear power plant`s radionuclide monitoring network enables continuous sampling of airborne particles onto sample filters contained within High Volume Air Samplers. These filters are then analysed in a laboratory in order to screen for any radiation releases. The challenge has always been to...
Our FireFly and P-150 ROVs are designed to support nuclear clients during scheduled outages. BWR (FireFly) and PWR (P-150) facilities have different inspection needs and we have addressed those needs with different ROVs.
