The Senior Engineering Manager for Cavendish, Dr Sebastian Proctor said:

I’m immensely proud of this project and what has been achieved collaboratively. We have gone from a position where we had no workable solution for getting the waste out to being ready for active retrievals in just 3 years.

There has been some exemplary learning around critical hazard reduction projects.
