NuGen is a UK nuclear joint venture between Toshiba and ENGIE. NuGen’s Moorside Project aims to develop a new generation nuclear power station of up to 3.8 gigawatts (GW)* on land in West Cumbria, North West England – enough to power up to 6 million homes and equivalent to 7 per cent of the UK’s electricity requirements.
OUR VISION: Creating 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.
NuGen plan to build three Westinghouse designed AP1000® nuclear power plants with the first scheduled to come on-line in the mid 2020s.
The AP1000 is based on tried and tested technology. It’s a next generation power plant and is already being built in China and the United States. When its built, Moorside will become the 17th, 18th and 19th in the series.
Moorside will be the largest ever private sector investments in the region so it will bring a major socio-economic boost.
With two offices in Cumbria, and a third office in Manchester, NuGen recently recruited is 100th employee. NuGen is developing a nuclear culture and an outstanding team with the expertise to develop, build and operate a major new nuclear facility to the very highest standard of safety and performance.
Moorside will be Europe’s largest new nuclear construction project and NuGen estimates that up to 60% of our Moorside project could be accessible to the UK supply chain. NuGen is taking a long-term approach to investing in new nuclear and looks to bring together market expertise, technological skills and construction experience. We are keen to draw on the existing expertise in the nuclear industry from across the North West. We are committed to maximising the use of UK-based suppliers and employees in our Moorside project.
The Moorside Project is anticipated to generate up to 21,000 jobs in total through the construction, operation and eventual decommissioning of the Moorside Nuclear Power Station. NuGen will seek to maximise the opportunities for local jobs, resulting both directly and indirectly from the Moorside Project during construction and operation. The large increase in expenditure locally will also have benefits for local businesses, services and the Cumbrian economy in general.
