Slender snake-like robot for remote applications Is this your challenge? The maintenance, inspection and repair of components in a nuclear setting is often limited by constrained access and intricate geometries. Borescopes can be used in some cases and can reach several meters, but the lack of control over the tool’s shape makes the procedure slow [&hellip

Robotic & dustless scabbling for most surfaces Is this your challenge? Nuclear power plants, reprocessing facilities and waste repositories often present areas that preclude human access Decontamination is a key decommissioning activity. It is used to accomplish several goals, such as reducing the dose level impact in a facility to allow for easier acces

Introduction Decontamination is a major activity that may be used to accomplish several goals, such as reducing occupational exposures, limiting potential releases and uptakes of radioactive materials, salvage equipment and materials or facilitate waste management. It is defined as the radioactive contamination transfer from a support to a material that can

Today, let’s talk about quadrupedal robotics for the nuclear industry. Nowadays, quadrupedal robots are considered for an extensive area of applications in various fields like space exploration, military application, industrial use, and many more. Could there be a place for them in the nuclear industry today? Amongst all the mobile robots, quadrupedal

The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) is the UK governmental body with the mission to clean-up the 17 nuclear legacy sites across England, Wales, and Scotland  safely, securely and cost-effectively. The most notable sites are the former MAGNOX generating stations, Sellafield and Dounreay. Today, we are going to discuss about the NDA RD&I repor
