Sellafield Ltd


Sellafield Ltd

Sellafield Ltd is a subsidiary of BNFL. One of it main aims is to manage the decommissioning of many of the UK's nuclear assets under contract to the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, a government body set up specifically to deal with the nuclear legacy under the Energy Act 2004. It is also involved in power operations, fuel production and reprocessing, international decommissioning, and international transportation. The body employs more than 13,000 workers, and manages the Sellafield facility.

In September 2005, BNFL announced that it would like to sell Sellafield Ltd (then known as British Nuclear Group). This move, that needs government approval to proceed, whilst enhancing the Group's ability to take on international rivals, has attracted criticism in that it would allow the private sector to profit whilst leaving the taxpayer to cover the bill.

Sellafield Ltd's focus is to deliver accelerated nuclear decommissioning and clean-up programmes, safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
