About NuGen

From its offices in Whitehaven and Manchester, NuGen is developing a team with the expertise to construct, operate and decommission Moorside Power Station, to the highest standards of safety, environmental protection, and performance.

Moorside Power Station will be a new generation nuclear power station, sited near to Sellafield in west Cumbria, and is firmly part of a new wave of new nuclear build, which will help secure the UK’s future energy supplies: delivering affordable, low-carbon electricity as part of a balanced mix.

For Cumbria, Moorside will be the largest ever private sector investment, providing a major economic transformation, to the whole county, and the north of England. It will create jobs, develop infrastructure to the region, and delivering economic security for thousands of people.
