JFN helps protect London 2012

The 2012 London Olympics was the highlight of that summer for the UK and much of the world, and James Fisher Nuclear (JFN) was proud to play their own part in helping ensure the safety and security of the games.

JFN was ideally placed to work with the Olympic Delivery Authority to put in to place a comprehensive package of radiological security measures having provided inspection and measurement services for homeland security applications.

To protect the Olympic Park a complete radiological screening system, capable of monitoring 100% of pedestrians and vehicles into the venue in East London. The system was designed to identify any source of radioactivity that could could be a potential threat to the Games and members of the public.  To achieve this the team at JFN needed to design a solution, procure, configure and test the equipment, and install, within the tight timescales that the event organisers required.

This fully integrated system was networked across the Park and monitored approximately 4 million members of the public and Olympic staff from a central control room, during the build-up to the Games, and the Games themselves.
