Veolia Nuclear Solutions UK Success at NDA Supply Chain Awards

Veolia Nuclear Solutions UK (VNS-UK) won the prestigious 2017 NDA Export Award for the design of the remote handling solution for the investigation work as part of the fuel debris retrieval at Fukushima Daiichi, Unit 2.

The work being delivered by the UK subsidiary company, Oxford Technologies, in conjunction with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), is for the investigation of the internals of the stricken reactor, and the development of a robotic access device with a range of tools, all based on the proven approach of the company’s heritage in fusion at JET, and current work in NDA decommissioning projects at Sellafield and Dounreay.

A table-top model of VNS-UK’s Dounreay Site Intervention Platform, brought down from Dounreay specially for the exhibition, attracted considerable interest at the company’s stand in the Innovation Zone.
