Dec. 17, 2015–NuGeneration Ltd., site owner of the planned Moorside nuclear power plant in northern England, has signed a $30.2 million contract with Dutch engineering company Fugro N. V. to carry out detailed site characterization work beginning later this month.

The work will “inform the design and layout of Moorside, and will support licensing, planning applications and other consents required” for the construction of three Westinghouse AP1000 reactors at the site. The work will include “onshore geotechnical site investigations, consisting of over 300 boreholes and laboratory analyses,” as well as onshore two-dimensional seismic surveying work and “marine geotechnical drilling of 30 boreholes.” The study is to be completed by next summer.

NuGen is 60 percent owned by Westinghouse Electric Co. and 40 percent by Engie, formerly GDF Suez.
