Her Majesty’s naval base (HMNB) Clyde

Usually referred to as ‘Faslane’, this Royal Navy establishment is situated on Gare Loch off the Firth of Clyde in Argyll and Bute and near to Glasgow (Fig. 17.1). It was constructed in the 1940s and is now the principal support base for the UK’s operational nuclear submarine fleet. The volume of operational radioactive waste produced by servicing the submarines is small compared to refitting or decommissioning work carried out at Rosyth or Devonport, and based on projected operations the lifetime packaged volume of LLW to be disposed of at LLWR is 770 m3 (NDA, 2011a).
