Kinectrics Inc. Supports the University of Strathclyde in a Multi-milllion (£) Industrial Partnership

August 01, 2017

Kinectrics is participating in a new  research and development project led by the University of Strathclyde and engineering firm Babcock through a multi-million dollar industrial partnership to make nuclear assets safer and more reliable.
 
The project also involves EDF Energy, Bruce Power, The Weir Group, BAM Nuttall, Imperial College London, the University of Surrey, Cranfield University and the Alan Turing Institute.
 
The 5-year program will look to develop advanced inspection techniques, biotechnology solutions for infrastructure repair, operational intelligence and data science, along with new products and processes for managing nuclear facilities and extending their lifetime.
 
Professor Stephen McArthur, Deputy Associate Principal at Strathclyde, is leading the research. He said the program “is clearly aligned with the industrial partners’ common strategic aims of safe, reliable, and efficient delivery of output; nuclear waste monitoring and disposal; mitigation of operational risk and creation of new, stronger nuclear products and processes.”
