Nugen’s plans for the three-reactor Moorside plant, near Sellafield, have been slammed in a new report. Radiation Free Lakeland, a nuclear safety campaign group, commissioned the report, published yesterday, through crowd funding. It claims the proposed reactors are “too great a risk to public health and safety”. The report by Edinburgh Energy and Environment Consultancy, written by Pete Roche, claims the AP1000 reactor design, to be used at Moorside, is “not fit for purpose”. It claims it therefore should be refused a Design Acceptance Confirmation (DAC) and Statement of Design Acceptability (SDA) by the Office for Nuclear Regulation and the Environment Agency. Members of Radiation Free Lakeland handed over the report to Cumbria County Council, the National Park Authority, Natural England and Friends of the Lake District.
