Preparation of Article 37 for Box Encapsulation Plant Product Store-Direct Import Facility (BEPPS-DIF) at Sellafield.
BEPPS/DIF is located at the Sellafield site in Cumbria and will receive and store ILW from Legacy Ponds and Silos (LP&S) and associated plants. Eden NE, under sub-contract to Golder Associates Ltd, was commissioned to prepare a submission, under Annex II of the requirements of the Commission Recommendation of 11 October 2010 on the application of Article 37 Euratom Treaty (2010/635/Euratom), relating to operation of BEPPS/DIF. Preparation of the submission required analysis of an extensive suite of engineering, environmental and safety case documents to extract key information related to the facility design, operation and radioactive inventory. Liaison with facility engineering and safety case teams was required to understand, and to assess the radiological consequences of, planned and unplanned releases of radioactive effluents.
A favourable opinion was delivered by the Commission in September 2018.
