On 11 February 2010, Unión Fenosa transferred the site's ownership to Enresa,a Spanish company responsible for decommissioning the power station. Enresa plans to clear the site by the end of 2015.
The Nuclear Safety Council has investigated the plant's deficient security system and a missing screw that prevented the reactor from resuming operations after a month-long refueling operation in December 2003.
