The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

NuGen tightlipped about the implications of abandonment of USA’s AP1000 nuclear reactors, and Toshiba’s problems

CORE 9th Aug 2017, Respondents to NuGen’s Stage 2 Moorside public consultation which closed
one year ago will learn little from NuGen’s response to CORE’s open
letter to its CEO Tom Samson on 30th June.

Refusing to comment on some of CORE’s questions on the grounds that ‘they are commercial processes’,
NuGen has confirmed only that it intends to publish a Stage 2 interim
consultation report – ‘but this has been deferred to ensure that
changes which arise as a result of the reviews (an engineering and wider
strategic review) are appropriately reflected in the report, which will
reflect both the feedback that NuGen received and detail how NuGen will
take that feedback into account’.

CORE’s spokesman Martin Forwood commented today that “NuGen’s inability to level with consultees,
however uncertain Moorside’s prospects, reflects the extent of the
turmoil facing its project and makes a mockery of its claim that
‘openness and transparency about our plans is the key to building
trust”.

The latest news of the plug being pulled on the half-built AP1000
reactors in the US and the fall from grace on the Tokyo Stock Exchange of
NuGen’s sole investor Toshiba will further add to the increasing
uncertainties swirling around in the Moorside mists”. http://corecumbria.co.uk/news/nugen-consultees-kept-in-the-dark-as-moorside-turmoil-increases/
