Trawsfynydd nuclear power station

Trawsfyndd nuclear power station is a disused Magnox power station situated at Trawsfynydd in Gwynedd, Wales.

Construction of the power station began in July 1959, and both of the two reactors were in operation by March 1965, with the station opening fully in October 1968. It had two Magnox reactors producing 470 megawatts (MW) in total.

Both have been shut down since 1991; the site is in the process of being decommissioned by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

New energy secretary’s appointment underlines unhealthy relationship between government and nuclear sector

Anti-nuclear campaigners have slammed the decision to appoint Ed Davey as the new Energy and Climate Change Secretary as further evidence of the unhealthily close relationship between the government and the nuclear energy sector.

Campaign group, Kick Nuclear, has learned that Davey’s brother, Henry, is a partner at Herbert Smith, a law firm that has a long-standing relationship with the nuclear giant EDF Energy. Herbert Smith’s website declares that it is, ‘proud to be at the vanguard of next generation nuclear in the UK’.
