Every week high-risk radioactive materials are transferred at Hamburg’s harbour. The destinations include a uranium enrichment facility in Gronau and a fuel assembly site in Lingen. A fire on a cargo ship in Hamburg on 1 May 2013 demonstrated how suddenly accidents can happen. The ship was loaded with radioactive uranium hexafluoride. Because sites like Lingen and Gronau are not affected by Germany’s nuclear phase-out, the end of nuclear transportation is still not in sight.
