14 British companies involved in nuclear decommissioning were involved in the Radioactive Decontamination & Radioactive Waste Disposal International Exhibition (RADIEX) meeting in Tokyo from 25 to 27 September 2013. Nearly 10,000 visitors visited the show of the 3 days, and many of them came to the UKTI stand.

The UK has the oldest civil nuclear industry in the world,

said UKTI’s Dr Keith Franklin, First Secretary (Nuclear) at the British Embassy,

and we have been carrying out decommissioning for over 50 years. This expertise is well recognised in Japan, and it was important that companies with real technological solutions to some of the challenges were able to come to this important exhibition.” Companies were able to report “very positive” meetings, with “several serious enquiries.

The UK continues to support Japan in the decommissioning and clean-up efforts at Fukushima Daiichi, and attendance at RADIEX is just one of a number of activities being undertaken in order to match relevant expertise with the challenges faced.
