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.
Digitally track and manage large components at quayside storage areas
The iX competition, delivered by the Knowledge Transfer Network in partnership with ORE Catapult, is supporting Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) to identify solutions to innovation challenges. This current challenge relates to the Logistics Management of large wind turbine component movements around port facilities. We are looking for digital and hardware logistics solutions to improve the tracking, management and optimisation of these activities.
