The UK Atomic Energy Authority (“UKAEA”) has awarded Veolia Nuclear Solutions (UK) and Wälischmiller Engineering GmbH separate contracts totalling £3 million to supply robotic manipulator arms to its RACE research facility. The £3M contract stems from the £12M UK-Japanese robotics deal for fusion energy and nuclear decommissioning research, called “LongOps”, announced in January this year. LongOps will support the delivery of faster and safer decommissioning at the Tokyo Electric Power Company’s (“TEPCO”) Fukushima Dai-ichi site in Japan and at Sellafield in the UK.
