Care & Maintenance (C&M)
During C&M sites will be remotely managed by a specialised team. The sites will be continuously monitored and planned maintenance and inspection activities will be undertaken.
The sites, and any structures that remain, will be kept in a passively safe and secure state for a great number of years. This will allow radiation levels within buildings such as the reactor safestores to naturally decay over time, resulting in simpler and more cost-effective decommissioning at final site clearance.
In addition to the twelve Magnox sites, the team will continue to manage, operate and decommission the Maentwrog hydro-electric power station near Trawsfynydd.
