Nuclear experts share experience

Experts in radioactivity from around the world have arrived in Cumbria for a major conference.

Members of the Hot Labs Working Group are attending the two-day event at the newly created National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) at Sellafield.

More than 50 delegates from Europe, the US, Japan and South Africa will be sharing skills and experience.

It is the fifth time the annual conference has been held in the UK since the group was set up in 1963.

They will also discuss issues like future industry needs, infrastructure, refurbishment and decommissioning experience.

The Hot Cells area of the NNL is amongst the most advanced in the world, with a remote handling capability for all highly radioactive materials used in the nuclear fuel cycle.
