Capenhurst - Nuclear Decommissioning Authority

Capenhurst (NDA) was home to a uranium enrichment plant and associated facilities that were originally built to produce highly enriched uranium for defence purposes and then modified to produce low enriched uranium for nuclear reactors. Uranium enrichment operations ceased in 1982 and associated facilities are being decommissioned. Many buildings on liveprivates site have been demolished to create reusable space, while the rest has been upgraded to safely store uranic materials arising from the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel at Sellafield and the uranium enrichment process undertaken at Capenhurst (Urenco) site.
