Createc wins a Queens Award for Enterprise Innovation
We are delighted to announce that Createc has been named as a winner of the Queens Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category. The awards, announced on the 23rd April, recognise outstanding achievement by UK businesses across four categories: Innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility.
Createc entered the Innovation category having successfully developed a 3D radiation imaging device for mapping nuclear facilities called N-Visage. N-Visage® is a patent protected technology that identifies the location of the source of radiation within nuclear decommissioning sites, as opposed to simply reading a radiation level.
This additional insight enables contractors to plan work more effectively and proactively manage some of the inherent risks in their work. It also enables the running of virtual projects identifying issues that may be encountered before they happen.
The system is constantly evolving with a handheld version launched last year and further additions planned. The system has been deployed at high profile nuclear sites including Sellafield in Cumbria and Fukushima in Japan.
Createc is thrilled to have won this award, after also being awarded the Queen’s Award for International Trade in 2018. An industry-leading business, Createc has also won awards from Institute for Engineering and Technology, The International Atomic Energy Agency, and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
