Back on Track at LLWR

Following the resumption of site operations in July, the PCM Demolition project team have been hard at work at the Low Level Waste Repository in West Cumbria. A number of measures have been in place since the restart to provide additional protection to the workforce, including updated safe systems of work and a phased return to work with staggered start times to reduce numbers in certain areas.

Demolishing one of the remaining magazine facilities

Lots of progress has been made over the last few months across multiple workfaces. This includes the demolition of a large facility and its ancillary buildings, as well as preparatory and waste management tasks in other facilities. Despite the initial unfamiliarity and challenges faced around the new working measures, everyone involved in the project has worked really hard to maintain progress whilst ensuring that safety has been paramount at all times.
