Dounreay Hazardous NORM Disposal

Augean Disposes Of A High-Volume Of Hazardous NORM From Dounreay At ENRMF

Project Description

From April to June 2023, Augean’s East Northants Resource Management Facility (ENRMF) received over 300 tonnes of hazardous naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) from Dounreay for disposal.

Originating from oilfield tubular descaling operations on the Dounreay site, the low specific activity NORM cemented into 200 litre drums were packaged into sacrificial HHISOs for final disposal.

Prior to receipt of the first consignment for disposal, Augean worked closely with Dounreay and Nuclear Waste Services (NWS) to prepare a disposal schedule for the first month of the project. This facilitated transportation and crane hire, thereby ensuring a smooth operation throughout from consignment loading to final safe and compliant disposal.

Project Overview

Client: Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd.

Project Name: Low specific activity hazardous Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM)

Volume: 300+ tonnes

Project Scope: Disposal

Project Highlights

  • Large volume of NORM comprising multiple consignments
  • ISO transportation and handling
  • Diversion of large volumes of waste from the National Repository
  • Significant cost savings for the taxpayer

Augean worked closely with Dounreay and NWS to ensure the ENRMF was prepared for the high-volume NORM consignments, all of which required ISO handling capability, and to allow other consignments to the site to progress as normal.
