Retrieval Systems & Tooling

Penny Nuclear has a successful history of providing retrieval systems to the nuclear industry. Legacy waste within vaults, cells or ponds poses a huge challenge on all sites. We can support decommissioning activities by providing complete mechanical systems which have been proven to be effective, thereby reducing project risk and development costs.

Utilising proven or off-the-shelf technology where possible, Penny Nuclear have developed a unique and rapidly deployable solution to retrieval projects. 

A modular approach also allows the customer to acquire a toolbox of different pieces of interchangeable kit, allowing them to cater for various or unexpected items without having to design or procure additional full systems.

Successful retrieval activities have been carried out by Penny Nuclear at sites such as Dungeness, Bradwell and Hinkley Point. Equipment has been designed to cater for both dry and wet vault conditions, as well as retrievals of various items, including Magnox Fuel Element Debris (FED), lugs, ILW items, sludge, gravel and even nuclear fuel.

We also supply the ancillary items to provide the customer with a complete solution, thereby giving you a true turnkey package to ease installation and commissioning.

Solutions Include:

  • Gantry cranes
  • Articulated arms
  • Grabs
  • Sort trays
  • Size-reduction/cutting tools
  • Shield doors
  • Waste drums/pots
  • Transport cranes
  • Export bogies
  • Power packs
  • Control systems
