Createc are a company of researchers and entrepreneurs developing new applications of imaging technology, often helping clients see the bigger picture. One of their reasons for being is to create and improve the technology used for nuclear decommissioning.
One of the big challenges with nuclear power is how to safely decommission a radioactive or hazardous site without posing a risk to human health. Createc used their project ‘Elephants to Ants’ (E2A) to trial a method for using a team of specialised robots to perform an end-to-end inactive decommissioning demonstration. We were lucky enough to be commissioned to film the demo week at UK Atomic Energy Authority’s RACE facility at Culham Science Centre.
