Created in 1996 to take ownership of the Magnox power stations from Nuclear Electric and Scottish Nuclear.

The other nuclear power stations of these two companies, seven advanced gas-cooled reactor (AGR) stations and one pressurized water reactor (PWR) station, were transferred to a separate company, British Energy, which was then privatised in 1996.

In January 1998 Magnox Electric came under the control of another government-owned company, British Nuclear Fuels, as 'BNFL Magnox Generation', operated and managed by US based Energy Solutions through its June 2007 acquisition of the BNFL subsidiary - Reactor Sites Management Company.
