Reactor 2 was shut down at 19:02 hrs on 25/04/12 for operational reasons, bringing to end, 41 years of safe and compliant operations.

Wylfa, Magnox’s last remaining nuclear generation site, has been safely generating low carbon electricity since 1971. Reactor one is currently licensed to generate until September 2014. Reactor two was shut down on 25/04/12 for operational reasons, bringing to end, 41 years of safe and compliant operations. Since Wylfa implemented the inter reactor transfer (IRX) programme in August 2012 they have generated 1.2Twh of electricity, or enough electricity to make 50 billion cups of coffee. This has resulted in additional revenue for the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority in the region of £50 million.
