In addition to these three laboratories, a Nuclear Technology Centre with a gamma irradiation facility is available at SHESTCO. This centre will be operated on a semi-commercial basis.
In line with on-going reforms, which encourage growing partnership between the public and private sectors of the Nigerian economy, SHESTCO is developing a Technology Park, an innovative project that, it is hoped, would attract or spur the growth of science and technology based research and development enterprises.
