Visit to Hunterston

Save for later


Posted by APM on 7th Sep 2011

Scotland branch members enjoyed a fascinating visit to Hunterston A power station to view the nuclear decommissiong.

This visit offered a unique opportunity to witness a live UK nuclear decommissioning project at first hand, including guided access around several of the current projects on the licensed nuclear site.

Mark Stubbs, Deputy Site Director led the APM visit himself and the project leads were always on hand to answer questions as part of the guided tour. Many thanks to Mark and his team!

Therewasa short presentation covering the site approach to decommissioning focusing on the current approach to project and programme management,followed by a tour of some of the prominent site project activity.

These includedthe recently constructed Intermediate Level Waste (ILW) store, modularly constructed active effluent treatment plant, waste bunker retrievals (SAWBR) project and the reactor weather envelope project. These projects are part of a comprehensive portfolio which will take the site into its planned care and maintenance phase where just three buildings will remain until the final site clearance plan is initiated later this century.

Feedback was excellent and the branch is grateful to Hunterston for the invitation to visit this fascinating project.
