The NDA is the organisation responsible for implementation of geological disposal in the UK and the RWMD is being formed into a wholly owned subsidiary of the NDA. In due course it will become the NDA’s Site Licence Company responsible for delivering a Geological Disposal Facility.
Bruce has spent over twenty five years within the UK nuclear industry and over 10 years experience in geological disposal, most recently leading RWMD. He is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer and Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. He has experience in all aspects of radioactive waste management including development and assessment of geological repository concepts and R & D related to long-term waste management.
“I am delighted to have been given this opportunity and look forward to continuing our work with a range of stakeholders including Government, local communities and the nuclear industry to deliver geological disposal for higher activity radioactive wastes.”
