Constructed in the 1950s to store, cool and prepare used Magnox nuclear fuel for recycling into new fuel, the FGMSP "urgently" needs to be emptied of 1500 cubic metres of radioactive sludge lying at the bottom of the pond which is equivalent to more than half an Olympic sized swimming pool, Sellafield Limited said.
During the FGMSP's 26 year operating lifetime it processed approximately 27,000 tonnes of fuel--almost 2.5 million fuel rods.
The Sellafield, Ltd., reported that the FGMSP "is one of Sellafield's high hazard legacy facilities and arguably one of the largest decommissioning projects in the world."
