Chapelcross, located within four miles of the Solway Estuary, is a four-reactor station with eight 30 MW turbines now undergoing early decommissioning. At full power when operational, the station produced enough electricity to supply every home in South West Scotland, the Borders and Cumbria.
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.
