Sellafield has been nearly 80 years in the making. A pioneer for the UK’s nuclear industry, it supported national defence, generated electricity for nearly half a century, and developed the ability to safely manage nuclear waste.
Each chapter of Sellafield’s history delivered great benefit for the country while creating a complex nuclear clean-up challenge for which there are no blueprints.
Today, Sellafield covers 6 square kilometres and is home to more than 200 nuclear facilities and the largest inventory of untreated nuclear waste in the world.
Capula has supported Sellafield for almost 40 years; building extensive control systems knowledge and experience through a long-term trusted relationship.
Our early projects still operational today include the Fuel Handling Plant, Thorp and SIXEP (Site Ion Exchange Effluent Plant), with more recent projects aligning to Sellafield site-wide digitalisation strategy and modernisation of their technologies. Over 70% of the control systems on site have been designed and implemented by Capula.
