Eden Nuclear and Environment was established in 2007 to provide consultancy and management services in radioactive waste management and disposal. Based in the Eden valley in Cumbria, Eden Nuclear and Environment has developed a strong client base and market presence supporting national and international clients.
Dr. Tim Soetens brings a wealth of experience from the Belgian nuclear sector. His main field of expertise is radiological characterisation of waste, although he also has a strong background in waste management, disposal and radiological safety. Trained mathematical physicist Tim’s view on projects maintains a healthy balance between scientific modelling and overall achievability. His past projects include uncertainty management of Belgian radioactive waste, qualification of Belgian producers’ radiological measurement equipment and radiological safety assessments for ONDRAF/NIRAS’s near surface disposal facility and for the replacement of steam generators at the Doel nuclear power plant.
