MP calls for Government to step into save troubled nuclear project



A CUMBRIAN MP has called for the Government to take a stake in the county's proposed nuclear project - after Toshiba expressed "serious doubts" about the company's future.

John Stevenson, the Conservative member for Carlisle, spoke out after Toshiba - which has a 60 per cent stake in NuGen - announced it had lost billions of pounds last year.

Nugen is behind plans for a new nuclear plant at Moorside, near Sellafield. It is one of the biggest developments ever planned for Cumbria, and is set to bring in thousands of jobs and provide a major boost to the county's economy.

Sellafield seeks 20-year construction partners

Sellafield is planning to place its multi-billion pound construction programme in the hands of four long-term construction partners.



The new procurement model will change how major projects are delivered at the nuclear site over the next 20 years.

Working as an intelligent client Sellafield Ltd aims to now establish integrated team partnerships for four key tasks.

One partner will deliver project and programme integration, another design and engineering, the other two civils construction, and process construction.

Sellafield will explain details of the new Programme and Project Partners (PPP) model and launch the tender race at a bidders day at the end of this month.

This collaborative model will be used to deliver the huge works programme more safely, efficiently and cost effectively.

More worries over Cumbrian nuclear new build




More worries over Cumbrian nuclear new build

Artist's impressions of what the Moorside power plant might look like

The company behind Cumbria's proposed nuclear new build is having a "review of its options", raising more fears over the project.

NuGen - which has plans for a power plant at Moorside, near Sellafield - has made the announcement following the news that troubled Japanese giant Toshiba is set to become its sole owner.

Toshiba already has a 60 per cent stake in NuGen.

After its American subsidiary Westinghouse filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy the other shareholder, French firm ENGIE, has used legal agreements to sell its stake to Toshiba.

The Japanese company is in serious financial difficulties after it reported a 532bn yen (£3.8bn) loss for the period of April-December last year and said it had "substantial doubt" about its ability to continue as a going concern.

A NuGen spokesman said: “NuGen is undertaking a strategic review of its options following shareholder and vendor challenges.

NuGen chief executive is '110 per cent' sure about Moorside

[IMG]http://www.newsandstar.co.uk/portalsuite/image//8f5ee8e8-8307-4015-994e-ba6ae219457c/mainMediaSize=0x425_type=image_publish=true__image.jpg[/IMG


Tom Samson, of NuGen.
5 May 2017 7:08AM

THE man in charge of bringing a nuclear new build to Cumbria says he's "110 per cent" sure the project will go ahead.

Tom Samson, chief executive of NuGen which has plans for a power plant at Moorside, near Sellafield, made the comments to Copeland's mayor Mike Starkie.

This week NuGen confirmed it was "reviewing its options" at the site - prompting concerns that the entire project could be mothballed.

It followed news that troubled Japanese giant Toshiba, which already has a 60 per cent stake in NuGen and has reported multi-billion pound losses, will become its sole owner.

Mr Starkie said: "I have spoken with Tom Samson and I have had a frank and honest discussion with him.

"I am reassured that the reasoning behind the strategic review is to ensure that the Moorside project is on the right track and the commitment to its delivery assured.

Cumbrian nuclear backer misses annual results deadline



15 May 2017 7:19PM

Cumbrian new nuclear backer Toshiba has announced it is set to make a 950bn yen (£6.5bn) loss and has missed a deadline to file its annual results.

The troubled Japanese giant has a 60 per cent stake in NuGen, which has plans to build a new power plant in Moorside, near Sellafield, and is set to become the company's sole owner.

It was given a deadline of yesterday to file its accounts by the Tokyo Stock Exchange but said that these were still being audited.
This comes after the company said last month that it had "substantial doubt" about its ability to continue as a going concern.

A spokesman said: "Toshiba expresses its sincerest apologies to its shareholders, investors and all other stakeholders for any concern or inconvenience caused."

NuGen chief says Cumbrian new nuclear has Toshiba's '100 per cent' backing



17 May 2017 7:41AM

The man in charge of plans for a £10bn Cumbrian nuclear new build and 21,000 jobs says the project has "100 per cent backing" from troubled Japanese giant Toshiba.

Tom Samson - the chief executive of NuGen, which has plans for a power plant at Moorside, near Sellafield - made the comments after his company announced that it was having a "review of its options" on the proposals.

Toshiba has a 60 per cent stake in NuGen and is soon set to take full control.
This change came about after the Japanese giant's American subsidiary Westinghouse Electric filed for bankruptcy, prompting NuGen's other shareholder, French firm ENGIE, to use legal agreements to sell its stake to Toshiba.

Toshiba is forecast to make a £6.5bn loss for the last year of business and has missed a deadline to file its final year accounts in Japan.

Chinese investors linked with £10bn Moorside nuclear plant



3 May 2017 8:34AM

Chinese investors are interested in the £10bn Cumbrian new nuclear project, according to new reports.

A delegation from State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC), based in Beijing, is due in London this week to meet representatives from NuGen, which has plans for a power plant in Moorside, near Sellafield, and trade

body the Nuclear Industry Association (NIA).

This claim has been reported by The Sunday Times and both organisations have not denied that such a meeting will take place.
There have been concerns over the project - expected to create 21,000 jobs - because of the financial health of Toshiba, which has a 60 per cent stake in NuGen and is soon set to take full control after its American nuclear division Westinghouse Electric filed for bankruptcy leading the other shareholder to use legal agreements to sell its stake.

Toshiba is forecast to make a £6.5bn loss for the last year of business and has missed a deadline to file its final year accounts in Japan.

Ex-NuGen investor casts doubt over Moorside proposal



20 June 2017 10:31PM

The UK is likely to only have one nuclear new build and it will not be in west Cumbria, according to the man in charge of a former investor in the local project.

Alistair Phillips-Davies, chief executive officer of SSE, has said he believes that only Hinkley Point in Somerset is likely to be built. SSE had a 25 per cent stake in NuGen, which it sold in 2011.

He has doubt about the proposals to build a power station at Moorside, near Sellafield, which have been put forward by NuGen, describing the project as "tricky".
Mr Philips-Davies made the comments following the difficulties which have been faced by Japanese giant Toshiba, which has a 60 per cent stake in NuGen and is set to take full control.

Koreans to discuss Cumbrian nuclear new build at London meeting?



21 June 2017 4:45PM

The company behind the plans for Cumbria's £10bn nuclear new build is set to meet top executives from a Korean company interested in buying into the project, according to new reports.

A report in the Korea Herald - citing "industry sources" - has said that NuGen, which has plans for a power plant at Moorside, near Sellafield, and Korea Electic Power Corporation (Kepco), which has expressed an interest in buying into the project are set to meet at a conference in London next week.

Both Tom Samson, NuGen's chief executive, and Park Jong-hyuck, the chief nuclear officer of Kepco, are due to speak at the event, which has been organised by trade body the Nuclear Industry Association (NIA), and takes place on Wednesday.

Korean firm 'in competition' over Cumbria's new nuclear reactors



12 July 2017 4:23PM

The Korean company interested in buying into Cumbria's nuclear new build has said it is 'competing' to supply reactors for the project.

Korea Electric Power Corporation (Kepco), which is in discussions about taking a stake in NuGen, which has plans for a new power station at Moorside, near Sellafield, has said it has found the British firm "positive" about using its APR-1400 technology.

This issue has long been seen as a stumbling block to Kepco becoming a Moorside investor because American company Westinghouse Electric is due to provide three of its AP1000 reactors to the project.

'Sellafield would be a coup for terrorists' - crime chief warns of terror threat as he battles for police funding



Crime chief Peter McCall has warned Cumbria's police force must retain ALL of its government funding to ensure the county is not seen as a soft target by terrorists.

The county's police and crime commissioner said nuclear decommissioning site Sellafield, on the west coast, would be considered 'a coup for terrorists', adding it is one of the reasons the constabulary must not lose a penny in an expected shake up of the national police funding formula.

Mr McCall is now set to travel to Whitehall for crunch finance talks with ministers where he will present the case for the Cumbria Police budget to be left intact.

In an exclusive interview, he said: "I will absolutely resist any cut at all to Cumbria Police's funding.

30 November 2017 8:35AM

The British and Korean governments have agreed to greater collaboration on nuclear developments, fuelling speculation that a Korean company is about to invest in West Cumbria’s Moorside power

station.

It promises greater collaboration in both the construction and decommissioning of nuclear power stations.

The signing appears to have only been reported by World Nuclear News and Business Korea websites.

A BEIS spokesman said: “The Secretary of State met with the South Korean minister on Monday to discuss civil nuclear collaboration.
