Cost of contract: US$ 1.5M
Description: GScan’s μFLUX Infra module is used for non-destructive testing (NDT) - 3D scanning, mapping and performing chemical detection of a now-defunct nuclear reactor on a training submarine. The reactor and the site’s radioactive waste have been buried in concrete within the submarine, which is further surrounded by a concrete sarcophagus. In order to minimise the risks of dismantling the site, high resolution 3D mapping and chemical composition analysis is performed, during which crucial data is collected - ensuring a safe work environment for the disassembling process.
