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.
Deployment techniques to allow remote working at height in high hazardous areas
Sellafield are seeking a solution that will enable working at height in high hazardous areas. The deployment technique should be deployable through a 150mm port, with a modular approach to end effectors e.g. characterisation, decontamination and removal of debris from cells.
