The company, a subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), is responsible for the 100 year programme to clean up the Sellafield nuclear site, in Cumbria.
Our Annual Review of Performance 2018/19, published today, details a year of achievement in the hazard and risk reduction programme at the UK’s largest and most complex nuclear site.
- Completing reprocessing in Thorp and making progress to safely conclude Magnox Reprocessing.
- Getting our two legacy waste facilities ready for retrievals. That means that in 2019/20 we will be removing waste and sludge from all four of our legacy ponds and silos.
- Awarding a 20-year contract to bring in Project and Programme Partners to help us deliver mission-critical capital projects at Sellaﬁeld.
- Changing the Sellaﬁeld skyline, bringing a redundant ventilation stack to a height where it no longer poses a risk to the surrounding buildings, and starting to demolish the diffuser at the top of the Windscale Pile Chimney.
