Dounreay

Dounreay Site Restoration Limited (DSRL is owned by a Parent Body Organisation (PBO) - Cavendish Dounreay Partnership Limited comprising Cavendish Nuclear, CH2M Hill & AECOM)

DSRL is contracted to carry out the decommissioning of the Dounreay site as well as the operation of the Low Level Waste (LLW) disposal facility next to the licensed site. In March 2015, a revised Lifetime Plan was approved, incorporating scope to move material from Dounreay to Sellafield, that had not been agreed or finalised when the original contract was signed. In July 2015, this scope was further updated. Dounreay will continue to deliver within its assigned annual site funding limits, while also delivering the additional scope. The contract extension required for the additional scope is still earlier than the pre-competition baseline for achieving Interim End State. The activities below give the current understanding of the updated plans and are subject to change.

£185 million

planned expenditure for 2019/20

60-hectare site

(plus 12 hectares designated for LLW facility) in Caithness

60 hectares remain covered by the nuclear site licence, the 12 for the LLW facility are designated but not licensed.

Modification in designating direction signed by the Minister in Jan 2012.
