Accelerating technology scale-up to address emerging energy needs

| | | |
Through AFCP, SME C-Tech Innovation has partnered with the National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) to develop advanced decontamination methods for existing infrastructure. C-Tech Innovation Technical Director Rob Bell illustrates how in supporting supply chain innovation, this work is ensuring that UK technology remains at the cutting edge of safety and design considerations.


Improving exiting decontamination approaches

C-Tech Innovation Ltd is a leading provider of technology scale-up and development in a range of industries. In the nuclear industry, we have been working with the UK National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) to develop and implement new technologies (ELENDES and EASD) to facilitate safer, quicker and cheaper decontamination methods for existing infrastructure.


Proving performance to advance future application

AFCP has provided a stimulus to initiate the development of active trial of our ELENDES technology with NNL. This is a key step in proving the technology and we are confident that the performance of the technology will enable the C-Tech and NNL to take the technology to full-scale implementation.


Progressing technology in time for a clean energy future

The changing nature of the UK energy landscape and new interactions with the supply chain have opened opportunities to consider new ways of working that have previously not been available to our organization.

AFCP has allowed our technology offering to move from lab trial to active pilot application, which will provide a firm foundation for the development and scale-up of the technology within the nuclear environment. Looking ahead, C-Tech Innovation Ltd will continue to strengthen our capabilities and experience of developing test and pilot systems deployed in active nuclear environments. Additionally, we aim to strengthen our portfolio of test and pilot systems for deployment in active nuclear environments.

AFCP is part of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) £505m Energy Innovation Programme.
