Pond clean-up activities across Magnox are now focused on Chapelcross Site in Scotland, the only site with water still to be drained down.
It's estimated that around 5 more years are required to reach a similar stage to Oldbury, Sizewell A and Dungeness A Sites which recently completed draining and decontamination programmes.

We're excited to see new concepts emerging

Ben Taylor, Safety Case Manager for the Decommissioning Programme, has been working to develop Magnox’s requirements for the newly launched Sort and Segregate Nuclear Waste competition. He believes that the successful system could be of value right across the nuclear sector.
