More uncertainty for Moorside nuclear power plant

Posted by: David Marlor

More uncertainty has dogged the plans for the construction of the Moorside power plant in Cumbria as National Grid have announced they are “pausing” their construction plans which would carry out the necessary infrastructure work while Toshiba carries out a strategic review.The nuclear industry is already currently mired in the uncertainty of losing EURATOM membership, let alone the wider implications of Brexit and the manifesto pledges in the run up to the general election. Rumours have been circulating that Toshiba would withdraw from all nuclear operations outside of Japan after making an expected loss of $8.4 billion so the announcement of a strategic review will not do much to shore up certainty.
