Nuclear specialists from the UK and Australian industrial/defence specialists have joined forces in London to formalise a multi-million-pound agreement.
UK-based Matom Ltd and AFL Services signed a Memorandum of Understanding in London.
The meeting at the Australian High Commission marks the beginning of a minimum five-year teaming agreement matching skillsets within the UK sector with the delivery of hazardous site management across the UK, Europe and Australasia.
Matt Tuck, Managing Director of Matom Ltd, said: “Matom is an established SME with diverse international and domestic experience across sectors where high hazardous challenges exist."
"We work in the nuclear sector in Australia in environmental clean-up and decommissioning, and AFL is focused on oil and gas and Ministry of Defence work. Matom will support this work with technical and operational services."
Based in Conwy, North Wales, Matom Ltd provides decontamination solutions, radiological protection and risk management.
