Government approves NDA strategy for clean-up

The UK Government and the Scottish Ministers have approved the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s (NDA) delivery programme.

Now approved, NDA’s Strategy is statutory document which sets the direction for delivering the nuclear clean-up programme.

“Our Strategy provides us with a clear view of our 10 to 20 year priorities and the scope of work across our 19 sites,” NDA chief executive Tony Fountain.

“The NDA is a small strategic authority; key to our success is translating strategy into clear plans and selecting the right delivery partners to execute them efficiently. We are seeing the best international contractors competing for UK business and in so doing building UK supply chain capability for the future.”

The NDA was set up to establish a detailed understanding of the challenges faced in cleaning up the UK’s civil nuclear legacy sites and to oversee a safe and effective programme of delivery.

The approval of the Strategy follows an extensive period of engagement with stakeholders during 2009 and 2010, including a formal consultation exercise undertaken between September and November 2010. The Strategy has been approved by the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, jointly with the Scottish Ministers as required by the Energy Act 2004.
