Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima
We feel very sad for the people of Japan who want to end nuclear energy whilst a potential new government and big business are desperate for it

No Fukushima at Oldbury

No to Fukushima at Shepperdine!

Tim Proudler says " We are not seeking an alternative site" at Tibbenham

Many thanks for your email. In response I can confirm that Horizon Nuclear Power is committed to developing its proposed new nuclear power station on the land we have acquired adjacent to the existing power station at Oldbury. It is this site that was nominated into the Government’s Strategic Siting Assessment (SSA) process which led to its subsequent inclusion in the draft National Policy Statement (NPS). Therefore we are not seeking an alternative site.

The initial ground investigations last year revealed nothing to suggest that a new nuclear power station could not be built on the site.

Kind regards,

Hi Samantha

It has been brought to our attention that the ground at the proposed site is very poor and therefore Horizon Nuclear Power are looking to buy land on the opposite bank where the ground is considered to be better (rock)

It is known that Hydrock drilled to a depth of 200m last year and took core samples which were viewed and witnessed by residents of Shepperdine.
The quality of the mercia mudstone was very weak.

Can you please provide responses so we can publish  this in the SANE blog.

Many thanks
