The current fleet of Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactors, owned and operated by EDF, are coming to the end of their operational life. UK Government has announced that, following defueling which will be carried out by EDF and takes between 3-5 years, the stations will transfer to NDA for decommissioning.
It had already been announced that Hunterston B and Hinkley Point B will move into defueling in 2022 and that Dungeness B will end generation with immediate effect and potentially begin low rate defueling later in 2022.
Nuleaf is engaging with EDF and NDA and a meeting for members was held on 9th February 2022. You can find the note of the meeting and the presentations on the ‘Other Meetings’ page of our website.
