Science & Technology Group News

I have booked a slot to visit the Nuclear Power Stations at Heysham on Tuesday 10th September.  The target start time for the visit is 11.00am.

The visit consists of a guided tour of the site, a talk about how the site works and a look at the Visitor Centre.   Overall, the visit takes 2-3 hours.  The tour includes the reactor viewing gallery, the turbine hall and the control room viewing gallery.  All tours include a safety and security briefing, and relevant personal protective equipment.

The list of attendees is now closed because there is a prolonged period required for security checking.
