The next steps have been taken in the decommissioning of Bradwell power station in Essex as it has just had all of its underground waste storage vaults cleaned. Waste, including metal, sand and sludge, was stored in 18 different vaults during the site’s 40 year life. The area will now be covered for the care and maintenance phase before being completely removed as part of final site clearance in the future. The power station stopped generating electricity in March 2002, after running for 40 years.
