Leak prevention or minimisation

Sellafield Ltd are seeking ideas, innovations and technologies that will deliver game changing solutions to prevent or minimise leaks from the Magnox Swarf Storage Silo (MSSS) Compartments 1 - 6.

Current leak rates are circa 1.5 – 2.5 m3/d. It is desirable to reduce these as much as possible. At present, it is not possible to determine with certainty the precise location of the leak, or indeed the silo or silos (of the 6) that is leaking.

Sellafield Ltd are seeking a proof of concept capable of deployment in a real environment as soon as practicably possible. Please download the challenge statement for a detailed explanation of the challenge aims and desired solutions.

The closing date for this challenge is Friday 25th June 2021 at 13:00.
