Ubisense precise realtime location system installed in production facility at British Nuclear Group
to protect decommissioning engineers in radioactive environment

Cambridge, England, Feb. 8, 2007 - The solution has been developed by BIL Solutions and allows engineers to manage their exposure to radiation as they work in operational nuclear plant, and is believed to be the only installation of its kind in the world.

The solution has been built using the Ubisense precise realtime location platform which is capable of locating people and assets to within 15cm in 3D and is rapidly becoming the location platform of choice for complex environments where reliability of a location is mission critical and key to the systems operation. Over 160 installations of the system have been made worldwide in the two years since its launch and the system has been embedded into a wide range of solutions such as the one developed by BIL Solutions.

“Our expectations set at the beginning of testing have been met”, said Karl Hughes, Programme Manager at BIL Solutions, “ and that gave us the confidence to move the system into a mission critical production environment”.

“The nuclear industry is renowned for its thorough testing and for the quality control procedures that it follows”, said Richard Green, CEO of Ubisense, “ so we are more than pleased that the system has shown itself to be a reliable component of the BIL Solutions’ solution”
