A first-of-its-kind pipeline, consolidating major decommissioning and waste management plans from across the sector, was launched last week.
Simon Bowen, Cavendish Nuclear Chief Executive, launched the National Nuclear Decommissioning and Waste Management Pipeline at the NIA New Build event last week in London on 11-12 June.
A key output from the Nuclear Sector Deal signed in June 2018, the National Decommissioning and Waste Management Pipeline maps the nuclear decommissioning landscape (civil and defence) in support of the Nuclear Sector Deal’s objective to achieve a 20% reduction in the cost of decommissioning compared to 2018 estimates.
Simon Bowen, who has led the Legacy Cost Reduction working group which delivered this, said:
“The announcement of the first ever National Decommissioning and Waste Management Pipeline is a big step in helping the sector unlock significant opportunities for the UK economy, reducing barriers to entry for the supply chain, creating jobs and driving focused innovation.
“The core team, which consists of members across government and the supply chain, have led the joint review of the Pipeline”
