ELSE NUCLEAR developed, among the first players worldwide, a deep know-how in all the activities connected to decommissioning of nuclear power plants. This led the company to design and manufacture different solutions for radioactive waste characterization, which find their main application in nuclear power plants, sites being decommissioned, hospitals, and wherever there is a need of waste clearance before free release.
Up to date, ELSE NUCLEAR manufactured and installed since its foundation many scanning systems in all the nuclear sites in the Italian territory. More recently, active collaborations with international partners led the company to expand its customer network abroad.
