Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd (DSRL) manages the decommissioning of the former Fast Reactor Research site in Scotland. The site contains three reactors, two reprocessing plants and a number of other facilities.
Orano Projects Limited is a specialist safety subcontractor to Jacobs Ltd. Under this contract, Orano Projects personnel were embedded into the DSRL organisation to produce safety cases and modifications in support of site decommissioning activities.
The safety case was produced with minimal supervision and cleared site’s due process without difficulty. The case was designed so that the later permissions for commissioning and operations could be completed by the operators, without assistance from safety case specialists.
