Oldbury

39 Site area (Hectares)
137 Station lifetime output of electricity (TWh)

Current phase: C&M Preparations

Oldbury is located on a 39 hectare site 15 miles north of Bristol on the south bank of the River Severn in South Gloucestershire. It was shut down in February 2012 after 44 years of safe and successful operation, generating 137.5 TWh. The site’s focus is on hazard removal to ensure entry into a C&M state safely and efficiently.

Key near term activities

The key near term goal for Oldbury is to ensure its workforce safely adopts the new decommissioning structure.

Other important projects include the early stages of decommissioning the ponds, desludging the floors and categorizing redundant items. Future work will include retrieving and packaging waste held within the site’s vaults.

Achievements

Since Oldbury was shut down in 2012, the site has successfully emptied its two reactors and shipped over 52,000 fuel elements to Sellafield for reprocessing, with it removing 99% of the sites most radioactive inventory.

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.
