Some of UCLan’s nuclear research team (Prof H Eccles, Dr Alistair Holdsworth, Mr Daniel Rowbotham and Dr Runjie Mao) visited EDf Heysham Power Station. Following a presentation on the history of nuclear power, EDf, and Heysham site the team visited Heysham 2 the last Advanced Gas Cooled Reactor (AGR) to be built in England. The team was impressed by many of the facts and features provided by the tour guide and how EDf ensures it is supportive of the local community.
