Our technical facilities are specifically set up to deliver R&D services to the UK nuclear industry.
Collectively, our facilities provide 8725m2 of work area for a range of services, including radioactive waste retrieval systems based on the application of various off the shelf technologies and waste conditioning encapsulation and grout plants. Some of our facilities boast overhead gantry cranes, ranging from 5 tonne capacity to 20 tonne capacity, whilst others are equipped with mobile cranes. Furthermore, the majority of our facilities possess 110V, 240V and 400V electrical supplies, as well as compressed air and water ring mains.
Test Rig Halls
Our test rig halls house full scale and prototype rigs to underpin technical solutions proposed by our clients. Based on the information provided through trials, our clients can move forward with confidence in their preferred option.
Our laboratory, based at our head office in Chorley, allows us to support our client’s development work in a cost effective manner by carrying out scaled down, inactive work before moving to active work on site. It is equipped with a fume cupboard and evaporator and, coupled with the skills and expertise of our dedicated team of in-house scientists, provides us with a range of capabilities, including test material and simulant preparation and analysis (including particle size distribution and rheology measurement); cement and polymer testing; small scale encapsulation mixes; compressive strength measurement; gas generation measurement; and chemical analysis.
