Berkeley Nuclear Power Station – ILW handling solution

As part of the decommissioning of Berkeley Nuclear Power Station, SCX Special Projects supplied a bespoke handling system capable of transporting intermediate level waste (ILW) storage skips into the confined space of a specially designated storage facility.

The Challenge

The stackable skips were filled with contaminated goods by the power station’s existing handling equipment, but then had to be moved into the storage area, where there was limited headroom above the top of the four storage channels, each of which then reached depths of 10m.

The Solution

SCX Special Projects designed a handling system capable of securely collecting the skips, moving them into the containment area and precisely stacking them within these deep holes in the facility.
