In-Service Monitoring of Nuclear-Safety-Related Structures

Scottish Nuclear Ltd is a subsidiary of British Energy plc and operates two nuclear power stations with Advanced Gas-cooled Reactors (AGRs) at Hunterston B on the west coast, and Torness on the east coast, of Scotland. The power stations are complex, combining heavy civil structures with a variety of different types of plant, both conventional and nuclear. Comprehensive in-service inspection is carried out which is designed to ensure that nuclear safety is maintained and that the structures are in a serviceable condition and support essential plant and systems to allow continued electricity generation and commercial operation.
