The Aquila team has many years of experience in the nuclear industry which includes the specialist areas of containment, shielded systems, remote handling and nuclear packaging.

Our engineers have been involved in projects from the design concept stage right through to manufacturing, testing at our factory and installation/commissioning on the clients’ sites.
