DSRL has published its annual report and accounts for the year ended March 31, 2010.
During the financial year, DSRL continued to reduce the site’s nuclear hazard, with the destruction of the liquid metal coolant at the Dounreay Fast Reactor and cementation of liquid intermediate level waste for long term storage continuing.
The accounts show that, during the year, the company surpassed its target for work performed, at the same time making significant cost savings.
At the same time its safety record remained positive. During the year, DSRL won a prestigious safety award, the British Safety Council’s Sword of Honour.
In March the DSRL received approval from the NDA to start the procurement process for its low level waste repository, the first to be constructed outwith Cumbria.
