Jacobs has opened a new Engineering and Technology Centre in West Cumbria, UK, to focus on decommissioning challenges. The 1,320m² high-bay facility in Egremont, one mile from the Sellafield nuclear site, will service a growing demand for engineering development expertise to design, build and test new technologies and techniques from concept to implementation.

The new centre has a 30m tall high bay test tower, a six metre deep test pit, and 20 and 60 tonne overhead cranes.
