Repatriation transport from Sellafield to Biblis suspended


The repatriation transport of vitrified radioactive waste from the reprocessing plant in Sellafield/UK to the interim storage facility in Biblis, scheduled for this spring, is suspended. As the German police authorities responsible for escorting and executing the transport have stated, the police operation is currently not responsible in view of the current "corona spread" and therefore cannot be carried out in spring as planned.

The companies and institutions involved in the repatriation will agree on a new date window for the repatriation in due course.
