Nuclear New build moves closer, continued

The BBC was carrying a story on Monday about the NuGen proposals for three nuclear power plants at Moorside near Sellafield, very similar to the reports which were in the West Cumbrian press last week and posted here a few days ago.

It seems to be essentially the same story with a few more quotes.

The three Westinghouse reactors planned for Moorside would have a combined output of 3.4 gigawatts. Nugen says they would be able to supply almost 7% of the UK's electricity requirements.

"Moorside is the most exciting new nuclear build project in Europe," said Sandy Rupprecht, Nugen's chief executive.

"We will be taking forward our project in West Cumbria, the UK's nuclear heartland, and we expect the national and regional economies to benefit extensively."
