NIA Welcomes NDA’s progress, as it releases its 2019-2020 Annual Report and Accounts
17 July 2020
Today, the UK Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) released its 2019-2020 “Annual Report and Accounts.”
The report reviews a year of progress towards the NDA’s mission of decommissioning the UK’s civil nuclear sites.
Among its achievements, being able to publicly celebrate some major milestones, such as completing defueling at all of its Magnox sites, is an important moment for the NDA’s mission: all 26 Magnox reactors – the world’s first type of commercial nuclear power stations – are now fuel free, with defueling being completed at Calder Hall and Wylfa.
Tom Greatrex, the NIA’s Chief Executive, said:
“The progress made at NDA sites across the country over the last year again demonstrates the strength of the UK civil nuclear industry’s globally acknowledged expertise, innovative nature and engineering excellence. This is critical work: our industry demonstrates year on year its capability, developed in the UK and increasingly sought after internationally, in meeting some of the most significant engineering challenges.
“The UK’s civil nuclear industry makes a positive impact to economic activity across the country and provides and develops skilled jobs in the NDA’s supply chain. These will continue to be vitally important as the economy recovers from the impact of the pandemic.”
