Businesses in Britain’s £70bn nuclear clean-up market were urged today to seize the opportunity of decommissioning Dounreay to become world leaders in the field.
The country’s leading suppliers of engineering services heard that innovation by DSRL and the supply chain would help establish Dounreay as Britain’s most successful nuclear decommissioning project.
“I want Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd to become the best site licence company in Britain and I want you to be a part of that success through innovation in how we deliver the clean-up,” said Simon Middlemas, managing director of DSRL.
He was speaking at the official opening of Technology and Innovation 2009, a one-day trade show for engineering equipment and services to the nuclear decommissioning industry.
Forty-five companies took part in the event which is aimed at specialists in design, maintenance, operations, decommissioning, waste management, process control and procurement.
The exhibition was held in a temporary marquee and aimed at staff on the Dounreay site as well as the supply chain.
The exhibition was organised by Nu-Tech Associates Ltd and sponsored by Nuvia.
