We have had an involvement with two projects within the Nuclear Sector and these are summarised briefly below.

As part of the planning application for Vault 9 at the Drigg Low Level Radioactive Waste Repository it was required to obtain some high quality geotechnical data. The first phase ground investigation was supervised and the required geotechnical testing was scheduled. At the same time the quality of the existing data, comprising some 500 data points, was reviewed  so that good quality data could be used to build a ground and hydrogeological model of the site.


Other work in the nuclear sector comprises a review of slope stability analyses of a slope within the Sellafield Complex undertaken by others
