Berkeley takes first steps to overturn unfavourable Salamanca decision

23rd July 2021 By: Creamer Media Reporter

Uranium developer Berkeley Energia has taken the first steps to overturn the unfavourable decision by the Nuclear Safety Council (NSC) for its Salamanca project in Spain.

The NSC earlier this month blocked the London-headquartered company’s planned uranium in the west of Spain on safety concerns.

Berkeley said on Friday that it had submitted an 'improvement report' to supplement its initial application, along with the corresponding arguments that address the issues raised by the NSC.

The company stated that it had requested a reassessment by the NSC.

Berkeley said that more than 120 previous permits and favourable reports had been granted by the relevant authorities at the local, regional, federal and European Union levels in relation to the Salamanca project, among which nine had been from the NSC.
