The Moorside project is split into three distinct phases:
We are currently in the development phase. During this phase we will:
- Continue to progress site characterisation works. Site assessments will continue through 2014 and 2015, and will include various techniques including surface and sub-surface monitoring and digging of boreholes in order to confirm site suitability in 2015.
- With the relevant planning permissions in place, NuGen will continue to work with safety, care for the environment, and partnership with local neighbours as their key principles for the site assessment programme.
- Build-up our organisation and capabilities and secure our nuclear site licence in 2018.
- Build the business case on which our final investment decision will be taken by the end of 2018.
