Hinkley Point A

19.4 Site area (Hectares)
103 Station lifetime output of electricity (TWh)

Current phase: C&M Preparations

Key near term activities

Work has been started to drain both cooling ponds enabling the stabilisation of the pond surfaces. 

Work is underway to start an ILW resin and sludge campaign and complete a buffer store in advance of an ISF. The conceptual design for a facility to retrieve and sort FED waste continues. In March 2014, the site must submit a periodic safety review (PSR) pack to ONR. This is a ten yearly requirement of the site licence to ensure alignment with modern standards.

Achievements

  • Cooling pond water drainage, processing and treatment has progressed well
  • Work to remove around 2100 tonnes of asbestos was completed after a 9 year project

Community

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.
