CASE STUDY: CREATEC

Winner of Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Exporting 2018, the radiation imaging specialist is helping experts at the Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant to assess the extent of the damage caused in 2011, when a tsunami following an earthquake disabled the power supply and cooling of three reactors at the site. Createc provided equipment to build up a 3D model of radiation levels inside the facility.

Createc is a multi-award-winning technology development company that solves challenging industrial problems using emerging technology in sensing, robotics and AI. Originally a spin-out from fellow Cumbrian nuclear SME REACT Engineering, Createc has been remarkably successful in developing global export business for its technologies. 100% of Createc’s customers are out-of-county, and over 70% of its revenue comes from outside Europe. Through its policy of local employment and local spending, Createc injects over £1M annually into the Cumbrian economy.
