NuGen is a joint venture between Toshiba and ENGIE (formerly GDF SUEZ).
Having secured an option to purchase land on the West Cumbrian Coast from the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, NuGen’s Moorside project aims to develop a new generation nuclear power station of up to 3.4GW capacity.
NuGen, supported by its parents companies, is currently working on detailed plans for developing the site. The company has unrivalled experience in global, large-scale nuclear and construction projects. NuGen combines the strengths of its two parent companies – established financial robustness and proven operating experience – with world-leading technology provided by Westinghouse Electric Company, a group company of Toshiba.
In progressing the Moorside project, our commitment is that we will:
Put safety first in everything that we do
Work in partnership with the local community
Promote UK employment and skills
Support supply chain excellence
Align with Government policy and contribute to the national debate
