Radiation containers

Product Literature

Forum Energy Technologies’ AMC radiation storage and transport modules help customers safely move radioactive materials that are used in drilling operations. The containers are designed, built and tested at Forum’s Scotland facility to meet the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) safety series no. 6 regulations and the DNV standard for certification 2.7-3.

Since the transportation containers are offshore compliant, as standard, they can be rapidly deployed into any region covering land or offshore applications, without further modification or certification. Forum’s unique design offers a safe and efficient loading/unloading system; thus, minimizing the need for manual lifting and associated safety hazards.

Forum can also offer a complete refurbishment and recertification service, helping to ensure that containers are returned to clients in as-new condition, which can extend service life and operation compliance.
