The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and Sellafield Ltd were pleased to welcome Baroness Verma, the new Parliamentary Under Secretary for Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), to West Cumbria and Sellafield.
The visit to Sellafield provided an opportunity for Baroness Verma, who has replaced Lord Marland, to familiarise herself with the most complex decommissioning and clean-up challenges in theUK. It also allowed Sellafield Ltd and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) to update her, as a key stakeholder, on the progress being made on the site and showcase the skills, commitment and enthusiasm of the workforce.
She said: “Visiting Sellafield really does drive home the sheer scale and size of the challenge posed by our nuclear legacy, and why we must continue to focus relentlessly on our world-leading decommissioning efforts.
“Decommissioning and cleaning up the site will take many decades but I am very encouraged by the progress being made and the dedication and professionalism of everyone at the site.”
