Leak mitigation and groundworks near sensitive structures

icon for challenge

The Magnox Swarf Storage Silo (MSSS) is a facility on the Sellafield site that was built in the 1960s to store nuclear waste from fuel reprocessing under water. Sellafield Ltd (SL) is in the process of decommissioning the facility and retrieving the waste so that it can be stored in a more modern facility elsewhere on the site. The challenger is seeking solutions which will support existing decommissioning activities and enable them to identify tools and techniques for the containment and mitigation of underground leaks whilst minimising the risk of potential damage to surrounding sensitive structures.
