The N-Reactor was a water/graphite-moderated nuclear reactor constructed during the Cold War and operated by the U.S. government at the Hanford Site in Washington; it began production in It was a one-of-a-kind design in the U.S., being both a plutonium production reactor Washington book nuclear weapons and, from Washington book, producing steam to allow production of electricity to feed the civilian power.

The last of Hanford’s nine plutonium production reactors to be built was the N Reactor. This reactor was called a dual purpose reactor in that it not only produced plutonium for America’s defense program, but it also generated electricity. It was the only reactor of its kind in the country.

The Department of Energy, Richland Operations Office (DOE-RL) proposes to decommission the eight shut-down production reactors located in the Areas of the Hanford Site, Richland, Washington.

Aside: The article about the ‘N’ reactor on DOE’s Hanford web site contains at least one factual mistake. “President Kennedy’s visit in took place just four months before he was assassinated in Dallas.” The date of the speech was September 26; he was shot on Novem.

The Hanford Site, formerly the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in southeastern Washington state was the place where plutonium was made for the bomb dropped on Nagasaki and many American Cold War nuclear weapons (plutonium for the rest was made at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina)/5.

Seventy years ago, the Hanford Site produced plutonium for America's nuclear arsenal. Today, it's run by the Department of Energy through its Author: Ronan Farrow, Rich Mchugh.After the Energy Department ordered safety enhancements, restart was planned.

However, in early DOE decided to place N Reactor on standby. With the end of the Cold War, there was no longer a need for plutonium production and thus, N Reactor was never restarted. Under Bechtel Hanford, Inc.'s management, the N Reactor Area has been deactivated.
