WAGR optioneering and waste packing

PDL participated in engineering and optioneering studies relating to the Windscale Advanced Gas Cooled Reactor (WAGR) as part of the ongoing decommissioning of facilities within the Sellafield site.

PDL were specifically tasked with providing concepts for the removal of the thermal columns, comprising a number of graphite bricks within a fabricated support structure and the cutting and removal of the outer ventilation membrane (OVM) - effectively a sheet metal skin with various stiffening and fixing features.
