EDF complies with Improvement Notice

27 November, 2015

EDF Nuclear Generation Ltd has complied with an Improvement Notice served by Office of Nuclear Regulation in March.

ONR served the Improvement Notice following an incident at Heysham 1 power station, which led to the release of around 30 tonnes of clean CO2 from a failed pipe in the carbon dioxide storage and distribution plant on site and extended the deadline in September.

ONR is now confident that EDF has met the requirements of the Improvement Notice and completed the required work, including associated records.
