Dounreay Site Restoration Limited (DSRL) is the site licence company responsible for the clean-up and demolition of Britain's former centre of fast reactor research and development.
Our aim is to become the benchmark in Europe for successful decommissioning of a complex nuclear site.
DSRL holds the site licence under the Nuclear Installations Act, the waste disposal authorisation under the Radioactive Substances Act and other necessary legal permits for managing the site closure programme.
Prior to April 1, 2008, the site was managed by the UK Atomic Energy Authority.
DSRL operates under contract to the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), a non-departmental public body of the UK Government that owns the site.
DSRL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Babcock Dounreay Partnership Ltd, a consortium of Babcock International Group, CH2MHILL and URS. It is funded by the NDA to deliver the site closure programme agreed with the Babcock Dounreay Partnership.
The company employs approximately 850 people (2012), with a similar number working for other companies on site closure sub-contracts.
