Strength in design
We have many systems in place to make the generation of energy with nuclear safe.
We build all our new pressure vessels within the reactors using steel and reinforced concrete that’s over five metres thick. They’re built to withstand huge impacts and survive earthquakes, floods and fires.
We practice something called ‘safety redundancy,’ which means we have multiple systems that allow us to shut the reactors down, so we don’t rely on a single system. We also have diesel generators and gas turbines on site in the event that we lose all external power to the site.
We regularly and rigorously train and retrain all our employees so that our safety systems and procedures are always fresh in their minds, with the very latest information.
