Meeting with the Nuclear Restoration Services

I enjoyed speaking to the Nuclear Restoration Services (NRS) in the Scottish Parliament yesterday.

The NRS is responsible for safely decommissioning the first generation nuclear and research sites across the UK, including Hunterston A.

150 people, including four apprentices are currently employed at the North Ayrshire site which contributes an estimated Gross Value Added of £27 million each year.

NRS is currently preparing to decommission seven advanced gas-cooled reactor sites currently managed by EDF, for decommissioning, including Hunterston B, which is being refuelled.

The first phase of decommissioning, the “Preparations for Quiescence” phase is anticipated to start at the end of defuelling in 2025, with a formal handover of the site to NRS expected in 2026.
