Our History

Aquila Nuclear Engineering Ltd was formed in 2011 by Calder Group and is managed by Dave Barker, CEO. Aquila quickly attracted Suitably Qualified and Experienced Personnel (SQEP) from the nuclear industry, with the vision of designing and supplying special purpose equipment for the nuclear and nuclear medicines industries. Aquila Nuclear Engineering provides pragmatic cost-effective solutions in specialist product areas, namely containment, shielded facilities, remote handling and transport/handling equipment.

Aquila operates within the UK for traditional nuclear market sectors namely decommissioning, defence, plant life extension, research & development and new nuclear build HPC. Aquila also serves the nuclear medicines sector throughout Europe and more recently in the USA.
