Veolia?s broad range of capabilities in the nuclear field have now been united within a new entity: Veolia Nuclear Solutions.

The business has operational centres in the UK, France, the USA, Canada and Japan and brings together a comprehensive range of technologies and services for facility restoration, decommissioning of plants, and the treatment of low-and intermediate-level radioactive waste, all nurtured by our nuclear experts and backed by thousands of Veolia staff worldwide.

In the UK the business includes Oxford Technologies Ltd which delivered the world?s first remote handling equipment to operate inside a nuclear fusion reactor. The business is staffed by an amazing group of uniquely-skilled designers, engineers and assemblers who are developing and delivering solutions to some of the most complex projects, which currently includes the UK, Europe and Japan.
