NUVIA Will Design and Supply Shielding Structures for the Jülich Research Institute

NUVIA has been commissioned to design, manufacture and install the shielding structures of the SKADI neutron instrument for the German research institute, Forschungszentrum Jülich.

Started early this year, the entire project completion, including the structure installation in Sweden, is expected by the end of 2023.

The SKADI neutron diffractometer is a universal instrument for a wide range of research experiments requiring the use of a small neutron scattering angle.
Significant areas of the SKADI instrument focus include biological and medical research, research on advanced materials, nanocomposites and energy storage materials. SKADI will become an important part of the large European Spallation Source research centre in Lund, Sweden, after installation.
