We are building a Long Term Legacy
When the Chapelcross Nuclear Power Station ceased generation in 2004, it brought an end to almost 50 years of electricity generation. This marked the start of a new programme of nuclear defueling and decommissioning of the former power station, which brought about changes locally for the workforce, brought about by changes in the nature of the work now being done on the site and the type of skills and employment needed for this next phase of work. It was envisaged back in 2004 that the decommissioning phase would be completed by 2017, at which point the site would be placed in long term “care and maintenance” and managed by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
