After a long, and rather cold spring, summer is finally approaching. As any other Swede, I am always interested in the weather, and we all hope for a couple of wonderful summer months. This is in part due to Sweden’s geographical location, but also due to the growing effects of climate change. Here, ISEC can play a small, but equally important role in the transition towards a more sustainable energy supply.

The start of 2024 has been very busy for ISEC. Our team has been active in various parts of the world these last six months. We started off with very interesting workshops with Westinghouse and Master Lee in Florida (US), followed by participation in various industry events and exhibitions in other parts
of the US, Canada, UK, Finland, France, South Korea, Finland and of course Sweden.

Everywhere, the attitude towards nuclear power has changed the political landscape. We see an increase in investments in the overall energy supply chain, in planning of new power plants, in expansions and upgrades, in recovery and recycling as well as storage of nuclear fuel.

As an expert company focusing on providing specialized camera systems to monitor processes in challenging environments, we try to make the best of these opportunities and turn them into business. Establishing collaborations with different key partners has proved a successful strategy for ISEC. In partnership with NG Baily, ISEC was awarded a contract for a turnkey CCTV system for remote monitoring of the process areas to ensure secure operations of the new Retreatment Plant at Sellafield (SRP). This is our fourth major contract in the UK, and we hope that our strategy will continue to bring growth.

We continue to add new customers to our growing list of users, and to provide support and upgrades to existing customers. I especially want to highlight the interesting project for Posiva. Here, ISEC provides eyes on the processes to be carried out deep underground in the world’s first long-term nuclear waste storage facility based in Finland.

During spring, we have also added new members to our team: David Ellis as our new Systems Project Manager in the UK. David has extensive experience from delivering CCTV systems to the nuclear industry. Our second recruit is Johan Lindén who is our new CTO and will lead product development and system projects from ISEC HQ in Helsingborg, Sweden. Adding new top expertise will help us strengthen our product pipeline as well as making use of already existing relationships and networks in one of our prioritized markets.

I want to end this note with wishing customers, partners, and employees a great summer and my sincere thanks for helping ISEC grow and improve as a supplier in the nuclear value chain. Together, we are helping to build a sustainable energy sector today and for the future.
