Agr Tour Agreement

The agreement does not apply to other nuclear power plants in the UK. Under the investment agreement, operators of new nuclear power plants, such as EDF`s Hinkley Point C, are legally required to bear the full costs of decommissioning and their full share in the costs of waste management and disposal “to ensure that taxpayers will never have to bear the costs,” BEIS said. Earlier this month, EDF announced that it had decided not to take over the first of the AGRs, Dungeness B, and to move to the refuelling phase with immediate effect. BEIS said the new deal would offer better value for money to the taxpayer and that EDF will aim to reduce the time it takes to safely remove fuel from power plants when they are disconnected before cooperating closely with the NDA to transfer ownership of the stations to the NDA.
