Dr Barney Love
Barney has been working at the Bradwell Decommissioning Site for six years, the last three of which have been on the Fuel Cooling Ponds. Taking the project from sealing and stabilising of the Ponds floor and walls, through deplant of the water treatment plant and ancillary systems, and on to final decontamination of building structures to reach a safe and passive end state. Before the Fuel Cooling Ponds Project, Barney worked on Bradwell’s ‘North End’ land remediation project from conception through to completion and prior to this was engaged in a phase of the site’s Legacy ILW Waste program, providing support through instrument maintenance and commissioning. Prior to working in the nuclear industry Barney has worked as a research scientist in the field of dynamical meteorology, involved in the analysis and improvement of global atmospheric models and the development of long range monsoon forecasting.
Bradwell Ponds Decommissioning – Deplant & Decontamination
The deplant of contaminated systems and the decontamination of structures represents a significant body of work in which operational health physics plays the key role in identifying and navigating a safe and commercially favourable deplant methodology and its sequencing. The identification of the most efficient decontamination techniques and the scale of their application, to achieve the desired final safe and passive state. This seminar sets out the development and application of this process on the Bradwell Ponds Project.
