Electronic Personal Dosimeter went into Alarm during X-ray Radiography Operations

Radiographers were working in a cell in a redundant reprocessing facility, carrying out digital imaging of legacy crates using X-rays in order to identify their contents.
This cell is an area of known high background radiation containing ten legacy crates.
A previous health physics survey of the crates had identified radiation levels in nine of the crates between 0.5 mSv/h and 1.8 mSv/h gamma, with the other crate up to 20mSv/h gamma.

UK should think again about Hinkley Point nuclear power station

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Plans for a new nuclear reactor at Hinkley Point are in doubt after EDF experienced setbacks with the technology in France

EDF, the French state-owned power company, can point to one big advantage of the nuclear power station it intends to build at Hinkley Point in south-west England. Once fired up, the plant's reactors will churn out electricity at a steady price, unmoved by volatility in wholesale gas prices.
