Boost for nuclear clean-up tool

The Northwest Regional Development Agency has awarded StructureVision £350,000 to help develop a tool to support nuclear clean-up programmes


The Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) has awarded Leeds University spinout StructureVision £350,000 to help develop a tool to support nuclear clean-up programmes.



StructureVision provides innovative software solutions to enhance safety and provide major efficiency benefits to the nuclear waste management sector. The Grant for Research and Development (GRAND) will go towards the development of a new digital modelling tool for the nuclear industry.



The technology can analyse and model object interaction, which enables objects to be packed into confined spaces such as containers. It will also be able to analyse and predict the most appropriate cutting lines for the cutting up and disposal of Intermediate Level Waste (ILW) during a decommissioning process.



The project is support by technical advisors the National Computing Centre and the National Physical Laboratory.
