    The Windscale fire of 10 October was the worst nuclear accident in Great Britain's history, ranked in severity at level 5 out of a possible 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale. The fire took place in Unit 1 of the two-pile Windscale facility on the northwest coast of England in Cumberland (now Sellafield, Cumbria).The two graphite-moderated reactors, referred to at the Coordinates: 54°25′27″N 3°29′54″W . Fire-prevention equipment and systems are extremely important at nuclear plants mainly because fire can destroy a plant’s ability to cool a nuclear reactor.

      The devastating fire at Browns Ferry occurred over 40 years ago & yet some nuclear plants have yet to be appropriately upgraded to meet improved fire safety standards. In the history the NRC provided it is noted that “The studies confirm that even in the unlikely event of a radiological release due to terrorist use of a large aircraft, NRC. Hosni shared with e-tech some of the findings of the book he recently published. This book focuses on process safety and reliability programme for the process industry plants (chemical, petrochemical, oil, gas, power generation, mining and nuclear power plants). Developing such a programme faces a lot of challenges, Hosni says.

For German nuclear power plants, the operational behaviour of different fire protection features has been analyzed in order to provide updated reliability data, mainly for technical reliability of.
