Sizewell B second Periodic Safety Review (PSR) after 20 year operation

In response to our request we have received from the Sizewell B Station Director a copy of the Office for Nuclear Regulation’ 5 Project Assessment Report Licence to operate Sizewell B for a further ten years together with accompanying technical reports in support of that decision. All the way through the reports is the qualifying phrase ALARP, which is shorthand for AS LOW AS REASONABLY PRACTICABLE, i.e. there is never any assurance that, in the event of a severe accident/incident, the measures adopted to safeguard us all are 100% proof against failure, especially of Sizewell B Reactor Pressure Vessel, and thus prevent a possible consequential major loss of radioactivity and all that entails: radiation victims and a wholesale evacuation of populations throughout East Anglia and beyond…

NOTHING LESS THAN 100% SAFETY IS REQUIRED, AND H” THAT CANNOT BE GIVEN (and it cannot apparently) THEN SIZEWELL B MUST BE SHUT DOWN : IT ISN’T WORTH THE RISK
