Key near term activities
Work has been started to drain both cooling ponds enabling the stabilisation of the pond surfaces.
Work is underway to start an ILW resin and sludge campaign and complete a buffer store in advance of an ISF. The conceptual design for a facility to retrieve and sort FED waste continues. In March 2014, the site must submit a periodic safety review (PSR) pack to ONR. This is a ten yearly requirement of the site licence to ensure alignment with modern standards.
- Cooling pond water drainage, processing and treatment has progressed well
- Work to remove around 2100 tonnes of asbestos was completed after a 9 year project
