IIND showcase event, 12 November, Lillyhall, Cumbria

Posted on: 11/09/2019

Attend a showcase of innovative solutions for the end-to-end decommissioning of nuclear reactor reprocessing cells.

The IIND is a collaborative innovation competition which was initiated in early 2017, with £8.5m of funding provided by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), Innovate UK and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Sellafield Ltd has provided end user input, to steer the competition and provide potential active demonstration opportunities.

Collaborative project teams were encouraged to form in order to develop and demonstrate innovative solutions for the end-to-end decommissioning of reprocessing cells. The end point was to demonstrate a decommissioning toolkit of scalable, transferable and integrated solutions which would drive safer, faster and cheaper decommissioning.

The competition is due to finish in September 2019 and each project will inactively demonstrate their end-to-end solution. Following this, Sellafield Ltd will assess each project, with an intention of taking up to two projects forward for active demonstration using a facility on the Sellafield Site.

The Showcase event will allow each project to present their solutions and developed technologies via presentations and video footage. Attendees will be given the opportunity to network, see some of the technology first hand and discuss applications with the experts.
