Organisations can bid for a share of the cash to develop technology to help clean-up the Thorp and Magnox facilities. Reprocessing at Sellafield will cease at the end of the decade.

The plants will then be decommissioned, although part of Thorp will remain operational as storage facility.

The competiton, called Integrated Innovation for Nuclear Decommissioning, is being run by the Nuclear Decommissiong Authority (NDA) and Innovate UK.

It will focus on the development of robots and remotely operated equipment.

The goals are to reduce risks for workers, cut timescales and costs and identify solutions for waste.
