Dr Paul Monaghan, MP for Caithness, Sutherland and East Ross, visited Dounreay to look at some of the complex decommissioning work being undertaken at the site.
On a visit to the Dounreay site this week, as a guest of the NDA and Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd, Dr Paul Monaghan, MP for Caithness, Sutherland & Easter Ross, said:
"I was shown some of the work being undertaken to completely dismantle the reactors at DFR (Dounreay Fast Reactor) and PFR (Prototype Fast Reactor). This is extremely difficult and complex work that must be done with utmost safety and robust security measures.
"I was able to see for myself just some of the solutions that are being devised to dismantle these historic plants. The enthusiasm of the workforce and their pride in the important work they are doing was very evident. I’m pleased to see such progress is being made."
