Date: April 2006
Location: Dounreay, Caithness

Five six tonne heat exchangers have been successfully and safely lifted and removed from the PFR reactor as part of the crucial decommissioning programme for the Dounreay plant. During the 20 year lifetime of the reactor the heat exchangers were used to cool the reactor roof gas. The work, carried out for UKAEA by JGC Engineering and Technical Services Ltd required removal of a Soft Patch on the north wall of the reactor building. This route was last used in 1965 to install the units. The heat exchangers have been placed in interim storage on the site
