  • Comment on: Nuclear's half-time report: How are the six sites progressing?

    Binyamin Ali's comment 3 July, 2018 11:27 am

    Thanks for your comment, Andy.

    Moorside has not been referred to as Sellafield for the sake of drawing a clear line between the historic site and the new development. The new development is referred to as Moorside by government and NuGeneration.

    As you note and as the article states, the reactor to be used at Oldbury has received GDA clearance.

    What has not been issued is the Statement of Community Consultation. The article has been updated to reflect this.

    With regards to GDA timescales, the average time taken is 5.8 years.

    The timescales below have been taken from the Office for Nuclear Regulation:

    UK EPR – 69 months
    AP1000 – 87 months (excluding 26-month gap)
    UK ABWR – 54 months
