The CBLF project forms part of the Hinkley Point A Solid ILW sub-programme, which will provide Magnox with the capability to safely retrieve, sort, process and load waste into their designated disposal containers for storage at the site’s Interim Storage Facility (ISF). The CBLF will process and package a variety of waste streams into 6 cubic metre concrete boxes and export these for encapsulation at the Modular Intermediate Level Waste Encapsulation Plant (MILWEP).

Gary Ward Cavendish Nuclear’s Business Unit Director said, “On CBLF we are able to bring the skills and experience gained from successful project delivery for Magnox at their Berkeley site.” Paul Winkle, Magnox Chief Operating Officer, noted: “The concrete box loading facility is integral to the waste processing capability at Hinkley. It forms part of a bigger system of waste retrievals, processing and packaging facilities that must all dovetail together to ensure delivery of our programme to reduce the overall hazard on site.”

Cavendish Nuclear is already delivering projects at Hinkley Point A for the Pre-Conditioning Facility and the Dry Vault FED Retrievals and is pleased to add CBLF to this growing portfolio.
