15 companies launch Hub for nuclear at Moorside: A total of 15 major companies have come together to support clean energy programmes and develop plans for a Clean Energy Hub based at Moorside in Cumbria.

The Moorside Hub which aims to promote the proposal of nuclear projects, includes British engineering company Atkins, French energy giant EDF and nuclear services firm Cavendish Nuclear.

These include small modular reactors (SMRs), a new 3.2GW UK EPR power station and advanced modular reactors.

The members of the consortium plan to create an integrated Clean Energy Hub for the North West by linking the nuclear plants to other energy technologies, such as renewables and green hydrogen.

Member of Parliament for Copeland, Trudy Harrison said: “I am really excited to welcome the engagement of the nuclear supply chain at this critical stage and want to thank everyone in industry and community leadership roles who have been instrumental thus far.”

Chair Ivan Baldwin, Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster, commented: “Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster is where the energy sector meets local business in the North West and we welcome the engagement of EDF and its consortia with their ambitious proposal for Moorside.”

Nuclear Portfolio Holder for Copeland Borough Council, Councillor David Moore said: “We firmly believe that nuclear technologies have a key role to play in our clean energy future and our communities have a long history of pioneering clean energy technologies.”
