Magnox Ltd is responsible for the safe and secure clean-up of 12 nuclear sites and one hydro-electric plant's operation.

Under the Nuclear Installations Act 1965, Magnox Ltd is licensed and the licence holder for 12 nuclear sites and one hydro-electric plant. As such, they are the legal entity responsible for the following sites, which the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority owns:

  • Berkeley

  • Bradwell

  • Chapelcross

  • Dungeness A

  • Harwell

  • Hinkley Point A

  • Hunterston A

  • Maentwrog

  • Oldbury

  • Sizewell A

  • Trawsfynydd

  • Winfrith

  • Wylfa

 

Each site has a Site Stakeholder Group (SSG) or Local Site Liaison Council (LCLC), which acts as a liaison between the local community and the site. Independently chaired, the groups meet regularly to examine our work, as well as that of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and regulators. 

Magnox is responsible for ensuring that activities are carried out:

  • safely, securely and predictably, with due regard for the environment

  • to the satisfaction of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority

  • in the organisation's long-term interests, their employees, the local communities, and the Magnox supply chain partners.
