Tuning in to site security at Dounreay

05 December 2008

[Dounreay News, December] Workers at the UKAEA's Dounreay plant in the UK will each receive a free wind-up radio, with a built-in torch, if there are no breaches of security rules at the site over a 60-day period. The challenge has been set "to raise the profile of site security and to increase awareness of site security policies and regulations." Dounreay was the UK's centre for experimental fast breeder research and development from 1954 until 1994. The site is now being decommissioned under a program that is expected to cost an estimated £2.5 billion ($5 billion) and will involve the gradual dismantling and removal of plant and facilities on site over the next 20 years.
