Managing the intense neutron and gamma radiation generated by the production of nuclear power demands high performance radiation shielding.
In a modern nuclear power facility, the need for effective radiation shielding extends far beyond the reactor itself. Within the power plant radioactive materials need to be stored, transported and disposed of safely and efficiently. Protecting workers and the broader environment requires shielding solutions as diverse as lead pots and shielded bunkers.
Nuclear decommissioning of radioactive plants and equipment is a major focus for the UK Nuclear Industry. Calder with its partner Pacific Nuclear Systems supplies a range of shielded disposal solutions including drums and containers for both low level waste (LLW) and intermediate level waste (ILW).
