Dounreay chemical leak probe finds breach of nuclear safety regulations.
Nuclear regulators have found “clear breaches” of safety rules while
investigating a chemical leak at the Dounreay plant in the Highlands.


The site operators have been ordered to carry out improvements to prevent a
repeat of the incident in April. Emergency crews were called to the
prototype fast reactor at the former nuclear facility in Caithness
following the leak at the sodium storage tanks in the building. Dounreay
Site Restoration Ltd (DSRL), which is in charge of the decommissioning of
the complex, said at the time that a planned reaction of material inside a
tank resulted in an “excursion” which caused the release of a “small
amount of caustic liquor”.
