Wylfa, Magnox’s last remaining nuclear generation site, has been safely generating low carbon electricity since 1971. Reactor one is currently licensed to generate until September 2014. Reactor two was shut down on 25/04/12 for operational reasons, bringing to end, 41 years of safe and compliant operations. Since Wylfa implemented the inter reactor transfer (IRX) programme in August 2012 they have generated 1.2Twh of electricity, or enough electricity to make 50 billion cups of coffee. This has resulted in additional revenue for the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority in the region of £50 million.

The statutory outage on Reactor One commenced on the 6th January 2014 with a planned duration of 100 days. During the Outage R1 and R2 will have zero output and site demand will be approximately 9 MW. R1 is planned to return to service on the 15th of April with TA1 the first set to synch. TA2 is expected to synch shortly (approx 24 hours) afterwards. Following return to service, station generation is now planned to continue until the 30th of September 2014 with possible generation extension to December 2015; pending Periodic Safety Case (PSR) approval.
