Nuclear waste removal works at the UK’s Berkeley power station have begun three decades after the site decommissioning. Located on the banks of the River Severn in Gloucestershire, Berkeley is a disused Magnox power station, which was the world’s first commercial nuclear power station. Operations at the power plant stopped in 1989. Many of the laboratories at the power station have already been dismantled. Currently, approximately 200 people are working at the power plant site. The complete decommissioning of the Berkeley site is estimated to cost £1.2bn.
