The NuGen consortium planning to build a nuclear power plant at Sellafield has scotched press reports that one of its members is pulling out.
Have your say
These power plants should have been started years ago....Government after government are messing about while our energy prices are being totally manipulated.There has to be an energy policy and it should be set in stone so governments cant mess with it.We are being short changed by our decision makers.No doubt these firms that are pulling out want better returns on investment, IMO we should build run and decommission the plants ourselves and use them to keep the energy prices reasonable.Rather than let more money be dragged out of the country by foreign investors.
Note to Steven and others:the main voice linking new nuclear build with a waste store, as reported in N+S, is Sir David King, Chief Scientific Advisor to UK Gov 2000-2009. King also said "Don't second guess the science . . do the Search" Makes sense.
I'm not trying to cause trouble, but a few months ago one company was told that if they got involved in any nuclear build that they would be down graded.... and if we do go ahead with it we will be the only one's building any in the world.
