SA Robotics is pleased to have started the design, manufacture and works testing of a Rotary Deployment Arm (RDA) for TSiF/Magnox’s plant at Trawsfynydd, UK. This is a long-reach, telescopic manipulator is designed to remove inventory and clean tanks associated with the resin vault 2 (RV2), resin vault 3 (RV3), main sludge vault (MSV) and pond north void (PNV) located at the Trawsfynydd decommissioning site.

The RDA will be deployed and used in the tanks/void that contain various waste forms, including ion exchange resin, sludge, effluent, and other products.
