Govt expects nuclear reactor to restart this month

Federal Science Minister Kim Carr has told the operator of Australia's only nuclear reactor he expects them to meet a timetable for restarting it.

Full report from ABC.

Mr Carr has made it clear he expects ANSTO to fulfil the plan to restart the reactor this month.

The report goes on to say ARPANSA (Australia's nuclear regulatory body) is in the process of reviewing OPAL's safety submission for the redesigned fuel. ARPANSA did not provide any indication of an expected completion date for their review.
