In-Cell Decommissioning System (IDS)

Cavendish Nuclear has created one complete engineered system for decommissioning redundant nuclear reprocessing cells by combining spatial & radiometric scanning, remote deployment and virtual reality (VR) control with proven tools and end-effectors.

Our In-Cell Decommissioning System is a Remote Deployment Device (RDD) which has increased the capability and speed with which redundant active reprocessing cells can be decommissioned by utilising a ‘point and teach’ approach controlled remotely by VR.

The system has led to safer and more cost-efficient operations.
