Innovating nuclear decommissioning


The site is required to deliver more value for less cost consistently through more efficient utilisation of the available resources (people, funds, assets, knowledge).
Innovative solutions are required to:
• Deliver more work at no extra cost
• Generate additional income
• Utilise existing assets to create value
• Eliminate or minimise inefficiencies
The power station team participated enthusiastically over two days in learning and applying Ideality’s ACTOR(R) process.   33 ideas were identified and plans for six specific project opportunities identified were prepared.   One of the opportunities was immediately put forward to the Group’s annual innovation challenge.
The ACTOR(R) process is systematic and demands a systematic adoption of the rules and principles in order to maximise the benefits of incorporating a rapid innovation culture.  The nuclear power station team made a significant step forward in adopting a systematic approach to innovation in the course of these workshop days, in their vital task of proceeding with a decommissioning programme that is safe for all.

More Innovation is Winning Through

Ideality, as part of the Innovation for Success consortium, has been reappointed by Scottish Enterprise to continue delivering innovation workshops for a third year.

Innovating nuclear decommissioning

Ideality recently ran a pilot project with a nuclear power station which is moving from the defuelling phase to the full decommissioning phase of its lifecycle. Successful innovation will help deliver a successful decommissioning programme.
