Leading providers of Safety Cases for Nuclear Facilities, and Radiation Protection services, Contaminated Land, Building and Waste Characterisation Services
RPS has over 25 years of experience providing support for nuclear decommissioning on many UK nuclear sites, in both civil and defence sectors.
RPS provides a comprehensive service in safety case development for simple and more complex decommissioning projects, including those with novel and unusual challenges. We are at the forefront of some of the highest priority decommissioning projects in the UK, working with design engineers to develop new approaches which ensure that decommissioning is conducted as safely, quickly and effectively as possible.
Our Radiological Services team provides a comprehensive service for investigation, assessment and remediation of radiologicaly and hazardous waste affected buildings and land. We can work alongside our geotechnical and site investigation capabilities, and our Explosives Engineering team, allowing RPS to provide integrated solutions to deal with sites affected by radiological contamination issues, buried ordnance, explosive, and hazardous chemicals.
As members of the SAFEGROUNDS learning network (www.safegrounds.org) our approach adopts UK best practices, minimising remediation costs.
