“What does it take to safety operate and decommission one of the world’s most complex nuclear sites? Learn about how we safely handle radioactive material and use advanced robotics to complete our mission. See if you can overcome some of our most difficult challenges by having a go yourself!”
Sellafield has been nearly 80 years in the making. A pioneer for the UK’s nuclear industry, it supported national defence, generated electricity for nearly half a century, and has developed the ability to safely manage nuclear waste.
Sellafield is the company responsible for safely delivering decommissioning, reprocessing and nuclear waste management activities on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority on the Sellafield site – arguably the most complex nuclear site in the world.
Along with offering amazing activities, Sellafield are also returning to sponsor our North West Innovation Award as part of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition.

Sellafield Ltd is safely delivering decommissioning of the UK’s nuclear legacy as well as fuel recycling and the management of low, high and intermediate level nuclear waste activities on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
