Trawsfynydd crosses halfway point

The decommissioning of Trawsfynydd Site, Wales’ first nuclear power station constructed during the 1960s, has crossed the halfway point.

Work to deliver the site into care and maintenance (C&M) by 2016 is more than 50 per cent complete. During its C&M phase, radiation levels will slowly decay naturally, allowing the two reactors and remaining building structures to be decommissioned safely and more efficiently from 2074 onwards.
