Bradwell Site, located in the South East of England, one and a half miles from the Essex coastline, is a twin Magnox reactor, now undergoing decommissioning following shutdown in March 2002 after 40 years of operation. The station generated nearly 60 TWh of electricity during its operational life and on a typical day could supply enough electricity to meet the needs of three towns the size of Chelmsford, Colchester and Southend put together.
