Industry - Chapelcross Nuclear Power Station - Chapelcross, Dumfriesshire
A precipitator unit for burst slug detection at Chapelcross nuclear power station. The instrument can measure a fracture in a reactor the size of a pinprick. The 40 million building on a disused airfield will increase Britain's supplies of military plutonium and when in full production will provide some 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, the first nuclear power station in the world to produce electricity on an industrial scale - was begun in October 1955.
