Work has begun to combine a long-reach snake arm with our sampling tool

OC Robotics develop robotic solutions for confined and hazardous environments so can provide the perfect platforms for getting Viridscope in to sample where others can't reach

  • Posted On: 12 May 2017
In the decommissioning industry, many sites contain large spaces that preclude human entry and similarly require remote solutions.  OC Robotics will develop a new long-reach manipulator. The compact, modular system will use lockable links to traverse 10-20m drops; deploying snake-arms at the tip and carrying innovative tools, developed by Viridian Consultants and Createc, for inspection, characterisation & sampling of radioactive environments.

ViridiScreen will be used to locate areas of contamination prior to collection using our sampling tool, ViridiScope, for subsequent analysis.

Pulse Awards: Viridian - Driving innovation in nuclear!

Pulse Awards finalists Viridian Consultants talk about how working with EDF Energy has given them the opportunity to extend the application of the tool they've created into very different areas that they were previously unable to reach.

Viridian Consultants was chosen by EDF Energy as one of the companies to be featured in the social media videos of the EDF Energy Pulse Awards.
 
So recently we spent an exciting day with agency Shiny Red while they filmed us working on the Consort nuclear reactor at Silwood Park. The result is a short video highlighting our Pulse Award in inspection of nuclear generation assets and our relationship with EDF Energy.

Another award for Kym: Surrey’s STEM Woman of the Year

Kym Jarvis has been named ‘2017 STEM Woman of the Year’ by Surrey Chamber of Commerce. She was presented with the award at a special International Women’s Day event at the University of Surrey. Kym says she is surprised and honoured to receive the award which recognises her scientific achievements.
