CASE STUDY

Sellafield: Learning from experience

Major construction in nuclear is already underway at Sellafield, in support of decommissioning. With an annual expenditure of £1.7bn, this makes it by far the largest nuclear project in the UK. Executing such a technically complicated project over the past sixty years has understandably led to a myriad of community and supply chain challenges and successes. Rory O’Neill will discuss key lessons learned, and how they can be applied.
