Trawsfynydd, which had two 195-MW gas-cooled Magnox reactors, is on a 15-hectare site, on an inland lake in Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.
It started service in 1965 and generated 69 TWh of electricity over the 26 years until its closure in 1991.
The twin reactors at the site will now become the very first in the UK to be fully decommissioned.
