Specialist divers have completed their mission to clear up with radioactive waste from Sizewell A’s nuclear fuel storage ponds. The work, part of the decommissioning of Sizewell A, included cutting up fuel storage areas and redundant equipment. It has been completed two months ahead of schedule. The divers were shielded from radiation by the water in the ponds. During the dives, the team also cut up around 100 tonnes of other redundant equipment before removing all the radioactive sludge from the pond floor.
