The Site Licence Company

Dounreay Site Restoration Limited (DSRL) is the site licence company responsible for the closure programme at Britain's former centre of fast reactor research and development.

DSRL has held the site licence, waste disposal authorisation and other necessary legal permits for managing the site since April 1, 2008. Prior to 2008, the UK Atomic Energy Authority was the licensee.

Since April 1, 2012, the company has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cavendish Dounreay Partnership - a consortium of Cavendish Nuclear, CH2M and AECOM.
This is a consortium of:

  • Cavendish Nuclear (50%)
  • CH2M (30%)
  • AECOM (20%)

The consortium acquired DSRL following a competition conducted by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority for a contract to complete the closure of the site.

DSRL operates under a sole contract with the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA).
