Sellafield has been nearly 80 years in the making. A pioneer for the UK’s nuclear industry, it supported national defence, generated electricity for nearly half a century, and developed the ability to safely manage nuclear waste.

Each chapter of Sellafield’s history delivered great benefit for the country while creating a complex nuclear clean-up challenge for which there are no blueprints.

Today, Sellafield covers 6 square kilometres and is home to more than 200 nuclear facilities and the largest inventory of untreated nuclear waste in the world.

Licensed under the Nuclear Installations Act 1965 and holder of the licence for the Sellafield nuclear site, we are the legal entity responsible for Sellafield, which is owned by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
