Dungeness A Site occupies about a quarter of a 91 hectare civil nuclear site on the Kent coast in an area of Special Scientific Interest.
Dungeness A ceased generation at the end of 2006 after 40 years of safely supplying electricity to the national grid. As part of the decommissioning process, both Magnox reactors have been defuelled with the spent fuel dispatched to Sellafield in Cumbria for reprocessing.
At the end of decommissioning the area is due to be left as a brownfield site in keeping with the world-renowned shingle peninsula of Dungeness. Magnox Limited Ltd is working on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority to manage the work safely, efficiently and with due care for the environment.
