Nuclear decommissioning and the nuclear industry

Nuclear power is enjoying something of a renaissance. It is increasingly considered a green and sustainable source of energy. With recent investment, the "need" to invest has increased the relationship with igus® products within this industry.  From umbilical solutions, robot dress packs to bespoke 3D printed parts, many lubrication-free igus® products are now used in nuclear power plants.
Alongside the growth of these plants is the decommissioning process of dealing with redundant nuclear facilities that have reached the end of their operational life. The removal and safe storage of nuclear waste is highly complex process and requires innovative solutions and trusted suppliers. At igus® we provide motion plastic parts incorporated in nuclear decommissioning and handling equipment including cranes, transfer bogies, extending masts and robotic handling solutions
We are proud to support the nuclear sector and together with our nuclear clients igus® remain at the forefront of supply to this ever challenging and demanding industry.
