Radioactive Materials Movements (RAM) since 1988

Furnells has been moving various Radioactive Materials since 1988.

Drivers qualified to carry out the movement of Class 7 (Radioactive Materials) as well as the main classes of Dangerous Goods by Road (2,3,4,5,6,8 and 9).

We continue to undertake decommissioning projects similar to that carried out at Hammersmith hospital on behalf of the Medical Research Council, where 70% of the decommissioned materials were either recycled and transported by Furnells to Germany, or taken to Birmingham University for reuse in another project.

To this end we have been audited by LLWR (Low Level Waste Repository) and are now working under their “Framework Agreement”.

Specialist vehicles available include the Hammar ISO side-loader vehicle, XL rated curtain-side trailers, low loader trailers and skeletal trailers with multi-lock capacity.

For enquiries regarding the movement of RAM, please contact our Managing Director Zachary Thole (Accredited Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor).
