Operational Director - Risk
The Pile Fuel Storage Pond (PFSP) is one of a number of hazardous legacy facilities at Sellafield to be decommissioned as part of the overall Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) estate.
The PFSP contains an inventory of historic radioactive sludge and LLW/ILW solid wastes. It requires a programme of challenging projects to meet the overall goal of removing the radiological inventory from the pond; thereby reducing the hazard/risk posed by the plant in its current state. This will allow subsequent dismantling of residual structures.
RPS has supplied safety support to the PFSP programme for a number of years. We are currently the sole supplier of this service to PFSP via the Design Services Alliance (DSA).

Sellafield Limited (SL)
The PFSP currently ranks as the 2nd most hazardous pond in the NDA’s nuclear portfolio and 6th most hazardous liability at Sellafield. The facility is over 60 years old and contains significant quantities of radioactive waste materials.
The PFSP vision is to be the first pond on the Sellafield site to be safely emptied to an interim end state, with the aim to:
To meet the project challenges, we have integrated highly skilled RPS personnel into the PFSP project team; allowing collaboration and effective communication with both Sellafield and our DSA partners at all stages of projects.
