Engineering Design

NNL has offered engineering design studies and consultancy for close to 20 years. Our Engineering Design Team was initially formed as part of BNFL Consultancy Services to develop concept design for spent fuel reprocessing technologies. The core team was built from part of the original THORP Design Office team, as more challenging commercial reprocessing opportunities were being pursued. The team were then tasked with carrying out engineering assessment and design work to assess the feasibility and quantify the challenge.

Our experience in engineering design has led to an in-depth understanding of the technical challenges and constraints associated with nuclear spent fuel, residue and waste management. So as part of the NNL technical community, the Engineering Design Team is perfectly placed to deliver fully integrated technical solutions.
