Focus on Sellafield for NDA
Decommissioning work at Sellafield remains the number one priority for the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) in its latest business plan. Its work continues with a range of completed projects and contract awards across the country.
The NDA’s business plan for 2013 to 2016 sets out the priorities for the organisation across all of its 19 sites, including Sellafield; the UK’s low-level waste repository (LLWR) in north-west England; Dounreay in northern Scotland; the UK’s Magnox power plants, including the still-operating Wylfa unit 1; and former fuel cycle and nuclear research facilities. NDA chief executive John Clarke said that Sellafield is the organisation’s number one priority, where the focus will remain on a program of major projects to decommission high-hazard legacy ponds and silos. Meanwhile, work continues towards the completion by the end of the decade of contracts at the site’s Magnox and Thorp reprocessing plants.
