UKAEA Today Evolved Into Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd
31st March 2008
UKAEA Dounreay today evolved into a site licence company, Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd.
The site is also changing how it communicates with the media, public and other stakeholders.
A new website - www.dounreay.com - from today becomes the primary means of public communication for DSRL. News about progress to decommission the site and events will be posted here.
Recipients of who previously received the Dounreay Bulletin once a fortnight will now receive a weekly email alert, "news at dounreay.com", rounding up additions to the website during the previous seven days.
The Bulletin has ceased publication. If you do not wish to receive the weekly "news at dounreay.com", please respond to communications[AT]dounreay.com.
A new easy-to-understand monthly performance report, Countdown to Closure, will also be published soon at www.dounreay.com
Learn more about the site closure programme at dounreay.com public information centre at 7 Olrig Street, Thurso (open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday) and the world-wide web.
