NuGen building-up presence in West Cumbria

NuGen is building-up its presence in West Cumbria with two new appointments at its Westlakes office.

Kathryn Booth has joined NuGen full-time as Operations and Engagement Manager for West Cumbria.

Kathryn has more than 10 years’ experience in the nuclear industry in a variety of roles, most recently focusing on high-level stakeholder engagement and change management.

She brings a passion for localised stakeholder engagement and dialogue with her to the role, and will be NuGen’s operations lead at Westlakes.

Kathryn is joined by Phil Davies, who takes the role as Site Manager for NuGen’s assessment work at Moorside.

Phil has lived in the area for more than 20 years, and is well-known within the West Cumbrian nuclear industry following a series of high-profile roles in the area.

Kathryn and Phil will be joined by more recruits in West Cumbria as NuGen’s Moorside project gains momentum.

Site assessment work at Moorside is progressing well, with geophysical works completed ahead of schedule. The company, which aims to develop Europe’s largest nuclear construction project at Moorside, to the north and west of the Sellafield complex, will take forward a series of intrusive works through 2014 and 2015, which will feed in to the company’s detailed site lay-out plans.

NuGen’s Moorside will also be the biggest electrical output from a single UK nuclear power station.
