CEB February Lecture

Decommissioning the Harwell Research Site

Presented by: Laura Street (Harwell Site Manager, Magnox)

Harwell Site in Oxfordshire is the birthplace of the UK nuclear industry. Originally an RAF station, it became Britain's Atomic Energy Research Establishment in 1946. It operated until the early 1990s and then the task of decommissioning began. There were once 14 experimental reactors on the site, of which only three remain.

The decommissioning programme has been progressively releasing land to the Harwell Campus. To date, more than 25 hectares of land has been cleaned-up and delicensed.

The presentation will provide an overview of the remaining decommissioning activities required.
