Use of the Manuela 3D/Radiation Scanning Tool at Nuclear Facilities


Licensees, facility operators and decommissioning contractors have a need for comprehensive, accurate and precise radiological and topographical data to plan and execute safe and efficient Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D) projects. Traditional approaches rely greatly upon labor and administratively intensive data collection methods that require considerable time and effort to glean the relevant data to plan and perform work in a radiological work area. Orano Decommissioning Services has developed and utilized at French nuclear facilities a lightweight portable scanning instrument called MANUELA (Mobile Apparatus for Nuclear Expertise Localization Assistance). Recently Orano conducted demonstrations at two United States nuclear facilities using MANUELA that may prove useful in areas of the fuel cycle including:.

  • ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) planning during facility operations
  • Scoping and site characterization during the D&D planning phase
  • Remedial action support during active decommissioning work
  • Radiation and modeling planning for plant modifications
