NuGen represents nuclear industry at European science event

Manchester-based nuclear new build developer, NuGen, joined Europe’s largest science conference as part of a week of international science events in the city.

NuGen exhibited at the Euro Science Open Forum (ESOF), representing the UK nuclear industry which has its roots in Manchester and is NuGen’s home during the development phase of the Moorside Project to build Europe’s largest new nuclear power station at Moorside in West Cumbria.

NuGen relocated from London to Manchester’s landmark Piccadilly Place in early 2015 and began a major recruitment drive for nuclear and infrastructure development professionals, which saw the company recruit its 100th employee recently.

To mark this the company selected Róisín Gregory, a graduate working in the company’s procurement team to attend the conference and experience working at the leading edge of scientific discovery.

Róisín said: “I know that working on the Moorside Project is a unique opportunity, but to come along to ESOF to speak with the delegates and engage with them about the importance of Moorside - and new nuclear - really drives that home.

“A particular highlight for me was attending the session with Professor Brian Cox. His passion for science and his ability to engage with the audience is incredible – plus he mentioned the importance of schools in Cumbria working with the nuclear industry.”

A film of Róisín’s time at ESOF is available on the NuGen YouTube Channel via the following link:
