KUKA Systems solutions sort and size-reduce waste at a nuclear decommissioning facility
Automated robotic systems can build cars – or decommission nuclear sites. In hazardous environments, KUKA robots could be deployed to ensure human workers’ safety along the complete nuclear fuel cycle, from mining and enrichment to conversion. At a nuclear decommissioning facility in the UK, they currently support its decommissioning by sorting and size-reducing waste as well as swabbing and housekeeping. A second system to be installed subsequently will replace the lids on waste boxes and bolt them.
KUKA solutions with their well proven, high reliability are perfectly suited to facilitate a safer, quicker and cheaper decommissioning. Combined with outstanding technical support at the premises offered by a KUKA staff member, the automated robotic system offers the high quality results necessary for our nuclear applications.
