‘Reactorsaurus’ to rip up station

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

A remotely-operated 75-tonne machine nicknamed Reactorsaurus is to rip out the inner workings of a dinosaur of nuclear power production.

Engineers will create the monster to strip the defunct reactor at Dounreay in Caithness because conditions inside are too hazardous for humans.

Trials will be run on a life-sized model of Reactosaurus, before the real thing is built by 2013
