Interim Storage of Laid Up Submarines (ISOLUS) will be subject to a 2nd Public Consultation at the end of 2009. The nuclear reactor compartments (RCs) and contaminated pipework has to be stored until a long-term storage facility for nuclear waste is established. NIS has taken a sideways look at the options regarding the CUT UP of RCs for boxed storage and CUT OUT of RCs to be stored as a whole submarine section. The 1st consultation and current NGO policy is to support Cut Out.
