Magnox Limited undertook the remediation of a contaminated area at the reactor site. Magnox awarded a contract to Nuvia to provide soil monitoring and assay systems to be deployed to aid segregation of excavated material. Nuvia deployed its High Resolution Assay Monitor (HIRAM) and Gamma Excavation Monitor (GEM) systems to undertake the monitoring, together with equipment operators.
- 3,319 (2,000m³) excavator buckets monitored
- GEM allows rapid segregation of clean vs contaminated land (10-second count)
- 68 buckets identified as VLLW and only 61 as LLW
- 107 buckets were excavated and monitored per day
