Berkeley Boilers_6

Two of five 310-tonne boilers made a slow journey from Berkeley Power Station on the banks of the River Severn to Sharpness Docks in Gloucestershire.

 

The 72-feet long boilers will make the journey to Sweden via ship to be decontaminated and the steel recycled. Berkeley Power Station, one of Britain's first nuclear power stations, was decommissioned in 1989.
