Assessment of the UK HPR1000 nuclear power station design. Bradwell Power Generation Company Ltd is developing proposals for two UK HPR1000s to be constructed at the Bradwell site in Essex. General Nuclear System Limited (GNSL) submitted its UK HPR1000 design to the regulators for generic design assessment (GDA) in November 2017. We completed our initial assessment and published our initial assessment report in November 2018. We then carried out our detailed assessment of environmental aspects of the design and consulted on our preliminary conclusions from 11 January 2021 to 4 April 2021. We have published a document containing the responses received from stakeholders to our consultation. Read the document. Our consideration of each response received will be included in our final decision document. We are targeting for the final decision document and updated assessment reports to be published in early 2022, based on the current GDA programme.
