Successful execution involved assuming responsibility for two site license companies, Magnox and RSRL, and the 12 nuclear licensed sites. There were more than 4,300 employees at those sites, along with 27 nuclear reactors and one hydroelectric generating station. In 2015, CFP successfully combined the two site license companies into a single entity known as Magnox Ltd.
After 44 years of operation, the Wylfa Nuclear Power Generating Station ceased operations on December 30, 2015. Fluor played a key role in helping the NDA reach this milestone. Wylfa was the last working Magnox-fueled reactor in the world. In operation since 1971, the plant provided enough electricity to power every single home in Wales throughout its lifespan.
In October 2016, Magnox Ltd. reached a milestone at the Bradwell Power Station, announcing that cleanup crews had decontaminated approximately 33,000 square feet of surface area to date. Bradwell, located about two hours northeast of London, was one of the 12 nuclear sites Magnox Ltd. decommissioned for the NDA.
In September 2019, Bradwell became the first in the country to achieve Interim Status. This major milestone in the decommissioning of the 60-year-old site occurred at the end of CFP’s five-year contract with the NDA.
