Oldbury Verified Fuel Free

During March Oldbury received endorsement from independent regulators, the Office for Nuclear Regulation, that the site has completed its fuel free verification, confirming that 99% of the radioactive inventory is now gone.

Following the final fuel flask leaving site at the beginning of the year, all storage locations and discharge routes have been meticulously checked, as well as extensive camera surveys of the pond to ensure that no fuel or fuel fragments remain.
