Letter to Hunterston Site Stakeholder Group - 19 May 2020


19 May 2020

Dear SSG Member,

As a member of our community, I wanted to keep you updated on any developments at the power station.

As you are aware, market rules require us to give our most likely view of return to service dates.

The safety case for Hunterston B Reactor 3 has been submitted to the ONR for its independent assessment. To support time for this assessment we have revised our latest expectation for its return to service to 13 July2020 – previously we expected it to return on 1 June.

Reactor 4 came offline in mid-December, following a four month run of safe and reliable generation. We now aim to return the unit to service on 27 July 2020 – previously we expected it to return on 15 June.

I hope this information is useful to you as a member of the Site Stakeholder Group. Should you wish to ask any questions please feel free to ring the Station on 01294 826000 and ask for our Communications Officer, Nikki Thomson.

Yours sincerely,  

Paul Forrest

Station Director
