CASE STUDY

Sellafield Ltd

Sellafield Ltd is the company responsible for safely decommissioning the Sellafield site on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. Located in West Cumbria, Sellafield is the world’s most complex nuclear facility and has been at the centre of Britain’s civil nuclear history ever since its beginnings in the 1940s.

Synetica designed and supplied a large scale enLink Modbus wireless metering system to the Sellafield site to give detailed half hourly energy data site wide. The Sellafield site is vast, but with the enLink long range LoRaWAN wireless units, all areas of the site are comfortably in range, giving the on-site facilities team the detailed information required to operate the site at peak efficiency.

“Sellafield has 250 separate facilities crowded into just 1.5 square miles, making it the most densely populated nuclear site anywhere in the world. Our enLink long range LoRa wireless metering is giving site personnel detailed insight into energy consumption across the site for the first time”
