One of the two reactors at the Wylfa nuclear power station on Anglesey has been shut down for good, it has been announced
Reactor 2 was deactivated last night following what owner Magnox Ltd described as 'an issue with the conventional [non-nuclear] plant'.
It had intended to shut the reactor on the 30th April, and decided to bring forward the closure as a result. The remaining reactor at the site will be kept in operation until 2014.
Today was a significant milestone in Wylfa’s history. Although it is the end of anera, we must now focus our efforts on safe generation with Reactor 1
