The South West Nuclear Hub is pleased to welcome Inductosense as a member of its Innovation Network.
Inductosense is a Bristol-based company originating from the Ultrasonics and Non-Destructive Testing Group in the University of Bristol. In 2014 researchers developed and patented the WAND solution; a handheld measurement tool that wirelessly collects thickness measurements from ultrasonic sensors that can be permanently installed on the surface of pipework and vessels.
Since then, Inductosense was created as a University spin-out and has had its sensors deployed in volume across the globe in various industrial environments.
Dr Matt Butcher, CEO of Inductosense, said "We are excited to join the Hub Innovation Network and look forward to getting involved in projects. We have a few trials and projects running in nuclear applications, and hope to expand our growth into this market going forward."
South West Nuclear Hub Innovation Network Membership
Innovation Network membership is aimed at companies seeking to enter the nuclear technology development pipeline, e.g. offering knowledge transfer. Principally spin-outs, start-ups, SMEs and sector-jumpers.
There is no cost to join the Innovation Network, but proactive engagement is expected upon signing the agreement. Members in this tier can progress into the Applied Research membership category when collaborative projects and deeper engagement are initiated. Here, members can choose an incremental, (capped) project-based fee or an upfront flat rate.
