County Durham firm to supply nuclear threat detection tech to Europe


County Durham technology firm Kromek has announced contracts totalling £1.5m for the supply of radiation detectors to two “European governmental bodies.”

Kromek develops and manufactures radiation and bio-detection technology, and the latest deal will see it supply its D3M and D3S-based nuclear security products to the unidentified end users. It said that delivery of the products would start immediately and revenue from the deal would be received in its current financial year.

Kromek’s nuclear security products help guard against the threat of nuclear terrorism, accidents and the illicit movement of nuclear materials. Its devices can be deployed discreetly to enable real time monitoring and early warning of nuclear and other threats.

Kromek also supplies biological threat detection equipment, and the latest deal comes less than a month after it signed a deal to supply the UK government with bio-threat systems.

Arnab Basu, CEO of Kromek Group, said: “As governments reconsider how they can best provide for the safety and security of their people in the face of current geopolitical tension, demand for our nuclear radiation detection technology continues to be strong. These orders further validate the strength of our offer. We look forward to delivering these contracts and I am confident that we will continue to see further growth in our CBRN segments.”
