An expert design base for JFN in Germany

JFN has set up an exciting new venture in Hamburg to develop and service radiation protection equipment.

In August this year, James Fisher Nuclear created a new venture in Hamburg, Germany called James Fisher Nuclear GmbH (JFN GmbH), which will form a central hub of expertise to design and supply a range of high performance radiation protection instruments for contamination and clearance monitoring.

Explaining the location decision, managing director, Dr Ingo Koelln, comments:

‘Hamburg is ideally located to support customers in continental Europe, and to take advantage of the emerging decommissioning market in Germany, Sweden and Switzerland.’

The new venture is enhanced by highly skilled operators currently working in the region. This means JFN GmbH has exemplary credentials for radiological protection instrumentation, both in manufacture and in calibration and repair. These products are essential to the health and safety of nuclear operatives and safeguard against contaminated materials leaving designated zones.

Teams at the new site are currently working on new contamination monitors to check nuclear workers for signs of radioactive contamination, which prevents the risk of these technicians quite literally ‘taking their work home with them’. These customisable products will be designed, fully tested and ready for delivery by mid-2018.

‘All the products we produce will be of the highest quality, fully customisable to fit clients’ requirements, with system architecture specifically designed for ease of maintenance and to minimise obsolescence.’

Adds Ingo.

JFN is also setting up a worldwide hub for spares and support in the UK to make full use of its large service and support team there.
