Why Moorside

On 1 December 2011 NuGen announced that the name it had selected for its project was Moorside. 

The naming of the NuGen project brings clarity and a distinct identity to the nuclear new build development in West Cumbria, and provides a focus for stakeholders including the local community, regulators and the wider nuclear industry.

Moorside was chosen following a selection process taking into account local opinions, and the need for a robust project name that reflects local identity and regional aspirations.

NuGen will be using the project name now going forward in everything it does. Eventually it is expected that the new nuclear power station it proposes to build will be called Moorside Power Station.
