NuGen is a UK nuclear new build company aiming to develop Moorside Power Station, near Sellafield in west Cumbria.
Moorside will provide electricity for up to 6 million homes, equivalent to up to 7 per cent of the UK’s electricity requirements. NuGen’s vision is to create safe, reliable, affordable, low-carbon energy using proven nuclear technology.
Nuclear energy has a vital role to play in helping secure the UK’s future energy supplies, and in delivering clean, affordable, low-carbon electricity as part of a balanced mix.
Moorside will be the largest ever private sector investments in the region so it will bring a major socio-economic boost. It will generate up to 21,000 jobs in total through the construction, operation and eventual decommissioning of Moorside Power Station and NuGen aims to maximise the benefit of the multi-billion pound investment to the Cumbrian economy, through jobs, the supply chain and in realising its plans to leave a sustainable legacy in the community.
