ABSTRACT
The article reports that the second highest hazard removal on the NDA estate was the project to neutralize the primary circuit at the fast reactor. According to Mike Brown, decommissioning manager of reactors at Dounreay, the potential for something going wrong was very high. It is stated that by allowing the fuel elements to be vented into the primary coolant, engineers at Dounreay made a fatal design error during the 1950s.
