Waste handling equipment

Safe and reliable transfer solutions

We specialise in nuclear waste handling. This includes the design and construction of modular platform systems to transfer high-level radioactive waste in large custom shielded flasks. These systems require high-accuracy alignment and strength to support extremely heavy flasks, 16m (50ft) in length.

This solution comprises rugged modular segments that can be located and easily assembled in a temporary staging area. Flask interface carriages are positioned onto transfer frame rails and the flasks lowered on to the system. Rolls-Royce component transfer systems are adjustable in all axis to ensure a perfect fit between the flasks for the safe transfer of radioactive contents.

The fully assembled system accommodates flask combinations weighing up to 72,000kg (160,000lb).
