Sellafield the town

Sellafield is the most iconic nuclear site in the world and is home to thousands of buildings and thousands of people.

Sellafield is the most iconic nuclear site in the world. It is home to thousands of buildings and thousands of people. Operating the site 24 hours a day, every day of the year means that we have to provide many of the same services and provide the same infrastructure that you would expect to see in a small town.
From our equivalent to town planning and utilities to our own laundry, canteens, transport network and even a petrol station
– this is Sellafield, the town.

PLANNING

Making sure that the 2 square mile Sellafield site has all of the services it needs, when it needs them, requires the same level of planning as operating a town.

UTILITIES

We manage and maintain our own network of utilities and services, from power and water to waste.

SERVICES

Our diverse network of services, such as post, catering, emergency services, refuse and laundry are essential to the 24/7 operation of Sellafield.

KEEPING SELLAFIELD MOVING

Thousands of people work on the Sellafield site. Keeping them and the site moving relies on our road, rail, transport and traffic management.

EMERGENCY  PREP

Ready to respond. Our emergency response teams and workforce practice emergency procedures every month.
