Korean lifeline for Cumbria's Moorside plant

Cumbria's Moorside nuclear new-build is likely to be thrown a multi-billion pound Korean lifeline this week.

It is expected that an announcement will be made this week by Korea Electric Power Corporation (Kepco) to say it is joining the consortium behind Europe’s largest new nuclear plant.

That agreement will begin the process of securing final approvals from nuclear regulators before a final decision is made early next year.

The Telegraph has reported that alongside the Korean announcement, Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, will reveal a number of government pledges for the nuclear industry.

Mr Clark held talks with South Korea’s trade minister last month and they signed a memorandum of understanding.

Koreans rescue £15bn Moorside nuclear power station plan



The massive Moorside project was thrown into doubt when main backer Toshiba ran into financial problems and warned it was calling time on all future planned nuclear power station projects.

Kepco’s announcement, made in South Korea on Wednesday, will save the £15bn project but see the building programme slip back.

The firm, which ranks as the world’s fifth biggest nuclear power producer, said it planned to negotiate with Toshiba over the next few months to buy a stake in the nuclear project and sign a deal in the first half of next year if the negotiation progresses smoothly.

Work starts on new national nuclear college



18 October 2016 8:01AM

Work on the new £15 million National College for Nuclear, at Lillyhall, started this week.

Set to open next September, the hi-tech facility will become one of two centres. The second will be built at Bridgewater in Somerset.

The Northern Hub, built at the Lakes College site, will feature virtual reality suites allowing learners to experience nuclear installations in a virtual environment, science and radiation laboratories and specialised design and modelling suites.

To mark the occasion, the first sod for the nuclear college was cut at a ground breaking ceremony at the site on Monday.

The region's industry chiefs turned up to witness the event along with students who will use the college.

The National College for Nuclear will train the next generation of nuclear workers in a range of specialised careers, and aims to train over 7,000 learners across both facilities by 2020.
