HSE Grants decommissioning consent for Chapelcross

HSE InfoLine : 04 October, 2005  (Company News)
The Health and Safety Executive has granted consent to Magnox Electric Ltd for a decommissioning project at the company's Chapelcross nuclear power station in Dumfries.
The Health and Safety Executive has granted consent to Magnox Electric Ltd for a decommissioning project at the company's Chapelcross nuclear power station in Dumfries.

HSE has published a report explaining the reasons and considerations behind the decision, and describing conditions attached to the consent and the measures Magnox Electric Ltd will take to control any significant adverse environmental effects of the project. It also provides details of the current legal framework for nuclear safety, in particular the regulations under which consent was granted.

Mike Weightman, HSE's Director of Nuclear Safety and HM Chief Inspector of Nuclear Installations, commented: 'The process of considering potential environmental impacts has involved extensive public consultation and there has been a great deal of interest shown by national bodies and local groups alike. I believe that process has been open and inclusive and I wish to thank everyone who has been involved, especially those who took the time to send comments on the documentation provided by the licensee.

'Regulators, licensee, staff and particularly the local population all have a vested interest in the effective control of environmental impacts during Chapelcross' decommissioning. Magnox Electric must provide HSE's Nuclear Installations Inspectorate with a copy of its environmental management plan, and any subsequent revisions. We also require Magnox Electric to keep the public regularly informed on progress by making these plans available for inspection. We have striven to make our decision-making process open and transparent and will continue to do so throughout the project.'
