BNFL Pond Database System
Sellafield is a large multi-function nuclear site close to Seascale on the coast of Cumbria, England. Current key activities (2019) include nuclear fuel reprocessing, nuclear waste storage and nuclear decommissioning, and it is a former nuclear power generating site. The site covers an area of two square miles and comprises more than 200 nuclear facilities and more than 1,000 buildings. It is Europe's largest nuclear site and has the most diverse range of nuclear facilities in the world situated on a single site.
There are four ponds and silo facilities at Sellafield, all containing highly contaminated waste. In March 2015 work began to pump 1,500 cubic metres of radioactive sludge from the First Generation Magnox Storage Pond, enough to fill seven double-decker buses. The clean-up operation is arduous – the Magnox pond isn’t expected to be decommissioned until 2054. It is one of several hugely necessary, and hugely complex, clean-up jobs that must be undertaken at Sellafield.
The project was to design, develop, build and deploy a client server database to manage the nuclear waste storage ponds.
Technologies used include: Oracle, VBA, Winforms
Hihghlights: Integrity of data was vital. Software and hardware interlocks. Full audit trail. Highly visual display.

Just wanted to say a huge thanks for the work you have put in to creating our new web site, we are really pleased with the results.
I know we have not been the easiest of clients to work with as we had no clear direction in the beginning and then so many unplanned changes but thank you for your patience and it has paid off as we now have what we think is the best site in the “activity business" it is vibrant, easy to navigate, engaging and informative. Your advise and guidance through this process for us has been amazing and fingers crossed this is the start to a great new venture for us.
We have a few other projects we are working on and look forward to talking to you about these soon.
