Hunterston A power station, located on a promontory of the Ayrshire coast near West Kilbride 30 miles South West of Glasgow, is a twin reactor Magnox power station now shutdown and being decommissioned. The station, Scotland's first civil nuclear generating station and, at the time of opening, the largest in operation anywhere in the world generated around 360MW of electricity during its 25 year life - enough electricity to supply 700,000 homes.
Magnox Limited is the management and operations contractor responsible for the day-to-day operation of the site under contract to the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
