Magnox and RSRL merge

magnox 150Twelve historic nuclear sites have joined forces to safely and efficiently reduce the hazards from the first generation of UK nuclear power stations and reactors.

Research Sites Restoration Limited RSRL and Magnox Limited have merged to form a single organisation operating as Magnox Limited. The combined business will be responsible for 12 nuclear sites and one hydroelectric power station.

Regulators awarded new licences following a four-month shadow-working period where a common board and executive structure was trialled and tested. The move is part of a drive to ensure best value for the taxpayer following the arrival of Cavendish Fluor Partnership as the new Parent Body Organisation for both companies last year.

Kenny Douglas, Magnox Managing Director, said: “It’s a huge achievement to bring the sites together within just seven months and that is testament to the team that has worked hard to achieve it. The decision to create a single Site Licence Company under the Magnox entity was taken after much consideration and engagement. All the sites share a strong history and heritage dating back many decades. Our challenge now is to come together as one organisation and continue delivering safe and efficient decommissioning.”

Harwell Closure Director, Andy Staples, added: “The team across all 12 sites have a strong history and lots to be proud of. This next step in the journey will see us share our experiences, find common systems and processes and work together closely to ensure we meet our challenge and successfully deliver the programme.”
