In recent times the field of characterisation of nuclear environments has become increasingly more important, as site licensees begin to fully comprehend the true value that can be gained from robust and proper attention to this area.  Additionally, as facilities on site transition from operating through to POCO and finally decommissioning, the importance of a comprehensive plan for characterisation to underpin each stage in this transition becomes clear.   The benefits to be gained from this are huge, as the potential to move away from ‘worst case’ assumptions of radiological inventory and plant condition toward more realistic assessments becomes possible through characterisation.  This allows more fit-for-purpose solutions to be developed, potentially avoiding over engineering and realising big savings in terms of cost and ultimately accelerating hazard reduction and the transition through to a quiescent and passively safe plant.

Cerberus Nuclear have experience in the production of high-level strategies for characterisation of high-profile facilities in the UK nuclear industry, making use of the Data Quality Objectives (DQO) approach for underpinning the quality of data captured on plant.  In addition, Cerberus are at the forefront of the development of techniques which can be used for the non-destructive characterisation of nuclear plant environments.

Specialist Areas

> Development of Radiometric Techniques

– Assessment of residual inventory on plant

– Dosimetry in very high dose environments

– Activity derivation and isotopic analysis

> Physical Characterisation 

– Development of quick and user-friendly techniques for 3D spatial mapping of plant environments 

> Immersive Visualisation Platform

– Visualisation of multiple complex 3D datasets using our bespoke platform

Our innovative visualisation platform has been developed for application in radiation shielding & criticality safety assessments as well as nuclear characterisation. The ability to convey complex datasets in an intuitive and accessible way to key stakeholders provides a very powerful tool for informed decision making by a project.

 

Cerberus Nuclear are leading the way in this field of development. We have the knowledge and experience to apply it to a wide variety of situations and environments.
