Toshiba's review of its nuclear projects, including the proposed Moorside power plant in Cumbria, is a "huge development" according to a nuclear expert.
Paul Dorfman, Founder of the Nuclear Consulting Group, told ITV Border he thinks the company will definitely pull out of the £10 billion project, which it's hoped will bring 21,000 jobs to Cumbria.
This is a huge development. NuGen is what Moorside is all about. There is no question that they are pulling out of Moorside. It all comes down to the realities of nuclear economics. ENGIE are also worried about the cost of Moorside. The government is in talks with a South Korean company KEPCO but there is also doubt as to how interested they are in investing in Moorside.
