Magnox rebrands to become Nuclear Restoration Services

7 November 2023

The UK’s Magnox Ltd will in future be known as Nuclear Restoration Services (NRS). “This is more than a change of sign – it is a demonstration of the organisation we want to be – delivery focused, transformative, innovative and growing,” said NRS Chief Executive Officer, Rob Fletcher.

NRS (formerly Magnox) is responsible for safely decommissioning and restoring the first generation nuclear and research sites across the UK. The new brand represents the joining together of 12 Magnox sites and the Dounreay site in Scotland. It also paves the way for the addition of seven advanced gas-cooled reactor sites (AGRs), currently managed by EDF, for decommissioning, as well as other future missions. “While our brand may be changing our focus on safely decommissioning our nuclear sites remains the same,” NRS notes.

Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) CEO David Peattie, commented “Dounreay and Magnox are organisations with a proud history of energy generation, pioneering research and first-of a-kind decommissioning innovation. Bringing them together is significant in creating a simpler and stronger NDA group, working together to achieve our collective mission of safe and secure nuclear decommissioning – delivering value for the taxpayer.” He added: “As one organisation Nuclear Restoration Services can harness its collective skills, capability and resources to continue to successfully deliver our important work, while also enabling us to grow as we are trusted to more.”
