NuGen has joined the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO), the international organisation that supports nuclear operators in the pursuit of excellence in nuclear safety and reliability.
NuGen is in the development phase of its Moorside Project to build a new nuclear power station in West Cumbria which, when operational, will generate up to 3.8GW of low-carbon electricity from a sustainable source.
In becoming a member of WANO, NuGen is demonstrating a clear commitment to delivering the highest standards of safety and reliability. With membership comes the obligation of allowing peer review from other members of WANO, to ensure best practice is shared across the nuclear power industry, worldwide.
NuGen’s CEO, Tom Samson, signed the membership agreement at a ceremony in London with WANO Chief Executive, Peter Prozesky.
Tom said: “Our Mission is to build a highly trusted, highly skilled organisation to safely develop and construct a new nuclear power station at Moorside.
“By becoming a member of WANO we have made a public commitment to achieving this with the very highest safety standards. WANO offers unrivalled opportunity to share learning and best practice with other nuclear operators from across the world.”
