U.S. Donates Radioactivity Detector to Uruguay

MONTEVIDEO – The United States has donated equipment for detecting radioactivity to the Uruguayan government, the U.S. Embassy in Montevideo said.

The donation was made during a training seminar for the equipment’s users in the Uruguayan capital attended by technicians from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration, or NNSA.

The seminar focused on seeking and achieving better results in recovering orphan sources of radioactivity – those not under controls established for these types of materials –, the embassy said in a statement.

“We hope the equipment will be useful and will bring important benefits for the country, for example, in the detection of orphan sources,” U.S. charge d’affaires Bradley Freden said.

“The NNSA’s Nuclear Safety Program, previously known as the ‘Initiative for Reduction of Threats’ and launched in 2004, currently covers more than 100 countries seeking to improve global security in this sensitive area,” Freden said.
