Caption: Heysham B nuclear power station, near Lancaster, England, in 1982, during its construction. At that time, Heysham B was operated by the Central Electricity Generating Board. It is now operated by British Energy. It is also called Heysham stage 2. The large cylindrical structure (just right of centre) is the pressure vessel for one of the nuclear power station's two advanced gas-cooled reactors (AGRs). It was built from 1979, and began operating in 1988. It uses a fuel of uranium oxide, and has an output of 1250MW of electrical power. It has an estimated decommissioning date of 2023.
