Speaker: Geoff Wheeler, Berkeley Nuclear Laboratories Group

The CEGB’s Berkeley Nuclear Laboratories were created to service and support the Board’s nuclear power stations, as well as carry out relevant fundamental work. A major part of the R&D activities at Berkeley related to the reactor systems in operation – Magnox power stations, of which Berkeley was one of the first in 1962, and the Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactor stations that are still generating electricity.

The Berkeley Nuclear Laboratories Group is compiling a history of the staff, their work and achievements at the Laboratories, which was opened in 1961 and was operational for nearly 40 years. The talk will look at many examples of co-operation with industrial and university research, both in the UK and overseas.
