The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s commercial income rose by a third in 2008/09, thanks to increased electricity sales from its Oldbury and Wylfa power stations.
The body responsible for the clean up of the UK’s civil nuclear sites earned GBP2.0 billion in 2008/09 – GBP517 million more than the previous financial year. This meant the government element of the NDA's funding reduced to GBP898 million from GBP1.6 billion in 2007/08.
The NDA also said it has made GBP183 million in savings due to efficiency, which it has ploughed back into the clean-up mission.
"This report shows clearly that the NDA is now moving into full delivery mode, getting to grips with our core clean-up mission as the evidence shows for each site. We have added real value right across our estate: from the highly successful conclusion of the Sellafield competition to the innovative land auction process," NDA Chairman Stephen Henwood said.
The NDA’s 2008/09 Annual Report & Accounts was laid before Parliament today, 20 June 2009.
