Magnox Ltd – the company responsible for the decommissioning of 10 Magnox nuclear power stations and two former research facilities in the UK – has become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

The government said the move was finalised after ownership transferred from the Cavendish Fluor Partnership.

This follows an announcement made in July 2018 and marks a new approach to managing the UK’s 13 Magnox sites – 10 former Magnox nuclear power stations, two nuclear research sites and a hydroelectric plant.

Magnox chief executive officer Gwen Parry-Jones said being an NDA subsidiary gives Magnox more opportunities to work closely as part of the NDA group, share ideas and take a more flexible approach to decommissioning the UK’s first generation of nuclear power stations.
