Decades of commercial expertise
We can help unlock some of your own nuclear development, fuel cycle, waste management and decommissioning challenges by sharing the decades of commercial expertise we have built up in the UK civil nuclear industry.
We offer customers a wide range of consultancy services, strategic assessments and feasibility studies relating to irradiated fuel management, transportation and packaging, and we support utility customers and government agencies with advice on the strategic and technical options relating to the back end of the fuel cycle.
Our dedicated team in Tokyo can help unlock opportunities in Japan
On behalf of the NDA, INS works closely with the UK’s Department for International Trade (formerly UKTI) to connect UK expertise with real opportunities in markets around the world.
As an example, we are linking companies to opportunities in the Japanese decommissioning and fuel cycle market, where we have been operating and building unique relationships for 40 years.
Domestically we work closely with partners including Direct Rail Services Ltd (DRS), Sellafield Limited and Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) on both a consultative and commercial basis.
Helping businesses access nuclear markets overseas

Following the March 2011 accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent tsunami, the UK has sought to support Japan with the ongoing decommissioning efforts at Fukushima, in accordance with the joint-statement by the respective Prime Ministers in April 2012.
INS Japan has developed a new role as a ‘bridge’ between UK and Japanese companies in the field of nuclear reactor decommissioning and waste management. These are areas where UK organisations have significant knowledge and experience and are thus well placed to assist Japan with the new challenges it is facing.
With the support of NDA and in cooperation with the British Embassy in Japan, INS is aiming to continue to contribute in this regard for many years to come.
On behalf of the NDA, INS has continued to work closely with UK Trade and Investment to ensure that progress can be made using INS Japan’s Tokyo office, to create tangible opportunities for British nuclear engineering in the developing Japanese decommissioning market.
INS has also assisted TEPCO to produce a baseline mapping system at Fukushima daiichi site through a knowledge and experience transfer to TEPCO via consultancy services from a Sellafield Ltd team of experts who had produced a geographical information system for the Sellafield site. Guidance and support was also provided on the beneficial applications of a mapping system in Land Management for increased control of the use and allocation of land.
