SELLAFIELD Ltd has selected Tiger robotic vehicles, built by Fareham-based Saab Seaeye to work in one of the most hazardous environments on the planet. The announcement came after the Tiger had worked consistently in the highly-corrosive conditions for nine months, transferring waste material stored in spent fuel ponds, during which time it only needed to pause for routine maintenance. Sellafield has now ordered four Tigers for this challenging role. The Tiger’s durability means that there is limited need for intervention by operators for maintenance purposes, considerably reducing their exposure in this hazardous environment.
