Magnox, owned by EnergySolutions, is the management and operations contractor responsible for 10 nuclear sites and one hydroelectric plant in the UK.
Under contract to the site owner, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, the company is responsible for electricity generation at Wylfa and Maentwrog, defuelling at Chapelcross, Oldbury and Sizewell A, and the decommissioning of Hunterston A, Berkeley, Bradwell, Dungeness A , Hinkley Point A and Trawsfynydd.
The mission of Magnox Limited over the next five years is:
To build on Magnox’s excellent safety and environmental performance
To maximise the value from the remaining generating sites, and safely bring to an end over 50 years of Magnox electricity generation in the UK
To complete the programme for dealing with the remaining spent fuel (the MOP), and in so doing avoid leaving behind any legacy of this material
To reduce risk and cost by delivering the Magnox Optimised Decommissioning Programme (MODP)
To deliver a Care and Maintenance state on at least one Magnox site
To pioneer innovative and transformational solutions, and ways of working
To reshape and reduce our workforce in line with the MODP, whilst providing strong and responsive support to our people
To deliver in partnership with our workforce and the trade unions and finally, recognising that the future beyond five years is all about decommissioning
To progressively transform Magnox into a world-class, high performing decommissioning organisation
