Chapelcross Nuclear Power Station - Chapelcross, Dumfriesshire
Number One reactor is now generating at Scotland's first 40m nuclear power station, which will be officially opened tomorrow (May 2) at Chapelcross, near Annan, in Dumfriesshire. The station, built on a disused airfield, will increase Britain's supplies of military plutonium and when in full production will provide come 140 megawatts of electricity for the national grid. Its other three reactors will be commissioned at intervals throughout the remainder of this year. Construction of the Chapelcross station - which is of the same type as Calder Hall, Cumberland, is the first nuclear power station in the world to produce electricity on an industrial scale - was begun in October 1955.
