Tom Greatrex, chief executive of the NIA, said:


“Toshiba’s announcement today to wind-up NuGen – the nuclear power plant construction project in Cumbria – is sad news for all those involved in the project and for the nuclear sector.

“The Moorside site in Cumbria remains a site designated by Government for nuclear new build and has huge local support. It is therefore vital Government facilitates the build of new nuclear on the site for the sake of the energy security of the UK and for the local economy in Cumbria.

“With all but one of the UK’s nuclear power plant due to come offline before 2030, there’s an urgent need for new nuclear to be built quickly, and the Moorside site has a key role to play in this.”
