NuGen is a UK nuclear company owned by GDF SUEZ and IBERDROLA. NuGen’s Moorside project focuses on the development of a new generation nuclear power station of up to 3.6 GW on land in West Cumbria, North West England.
NuGen recognises that major investment is required in the UK to respond to the dual challenges of securing future energy supplies and achieving reductions in CO2 emissions. We believe that nuclear energy has an important role in meeting these challenges and must be part of a balanced future energy mix delivering stably-priced and clean low-carbon energy for the UK’s future.
NuGen can draw on the extensive experience of its two respected parent companies and is committed to putting safety at the forefront of its Moorside project, and we will incorporate into its planning any lessons learned from recent events in Japan.
NuGen will work in partnership with the local community in West Cumbria and will look to maximise employment and skills opportunities in the region.
