Sizewell A is located near Leiston in Suffolk and is a twin reactor site. The site became fully operational in 1966, and shut down on 31 December 2006. Over 40 years of safe, compliant generation the site produced 110 TWh of electricity. The site is currently more than 50% defuelled.
Current phase: Defuelling
Key near term activities
The key activity for the site is working steadily towards completion of defuelling in 2015.
It is also undertaking project works to enable its transition into decommissioning such as the electrical and control and instrumentation overlay projects. The site will also continue its ongoing efforts to ensure that systems and structures remain fit-for-purpose and use a process called “configuration control” to create opportunities for future deplanting and demolition work as resources and funding are available.
- More than 50% of the fuel has now been removed from the site.
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are a key link in our supply chain and Magnox is committed to supporting the SME agenda for growth.
Opportunities for contracts and ways to become a supplier are set out in the main Suppliers pages of this website.
Site Stakeholder Groups (SSG) are long-established at each of the Magnox sites and provide an opportunity for stakeholders to find out more about the work being undertaken there.
Independently-chaired, the SSG meets regularly to examine our work, as well as that of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) and regulators. The SSG’s membership includes local councillors, non-governmental organisations and other interested stakeholders.
