Bidding is about to start for the £20m project to cocoon the Hunterston A Magnox nuclear power station on the west coast of Scotland. The two hexagonal-shaped 64m tall reactor buildings will be cloaked in an aluminium standing seam cladding system fitted directly to the building. This will protect the Ayrshire coast buildings when it is left in a 50 year care and maintenance phase before a five-year final site clearance programme starts in 2075. The contractor will also need to remove the existing temporary cladding system on both reactor buildings.
