British nuclear experts are being lined up to help decommission the damaged Fukushima power plant in a move that could reboot Japan’s atomic power capabilities. Lady Judge, the British- American ‘nuclear expert’ and adviser at Fukushima, is arranging for engineers from Sellafield in Cumbria to travel to Japan to advise on decontaminating and shutting down the stricken site.
“At Sellafield and Dounreay we are decommissioning big power plants and we can provide a very good example to the Japanese of how to do it safely” said Lady Judge in an interview with the Daily Telegraph. “I’ve been talking to Sellafield about sending some engineers to help”
