We are investing for the future and in February 2019 our Winfrith site became a standalone Nuclear Licensed Site - the first operating facility in 15 years. This major step enables us to grow our capability even further and enhances our role as a key player in the radioactive waste management sector.

Michael leads the team responsible for meeting regulatory requirements for all shipments in and out of Winfrith. Michael and his team are a vital part of #MakingComplexWasteSimple. In March 2019, Michael led his team to complete almost 50 individual consignments including some destined for recycling at international facilities. A record breaking number of consignments in a month for Tradebe Inutec and far more than many nuclear facilities would undertake in a single year! All achieved within one month of Michael and his team taking on the additional responsibilities associated with becoming a nuclear site licensee. Michael is a qualified Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor (DGSA) and often represents Tradebe Inutec at relevant competent authority stakeholder events to continuously develop his skills and knowledge within industry.
NAME: Michael McCrudden SPECIALIST SUBJECT: Managing nuclear waste consignments
Tom has been leading an operational team on one of the most complex projects Tradebe Inutec has undertaken in the last 10 years. The project, for a major UK client, involves decontaminating used nuclear fuel pond skips which have been classed as Borderline waste.
NAME: Tom Mitten SPECIALIST SUBJECT: Decontaminating complex Borderline wastes
As a result of the work undertaken by Tom and his team, we have now developed a new decontamination technique which allows the used nuclear fuel skips to be disposed of at the Low Level Waste Repository rather than through an Intermediate Level Waste routeâ€Śa much simpler and more cost-effective option for our customer. As well as his day job, Tom is close to becoming a qualified Health Physics surveyor as part of Tradebe Inutecâ€™s pioneering collaboration with Bridgwater College in Somerset.
