We at Shepperdine Against Nuclear Energy are sad that after E.on and RWE have decided to give up building new nuclear in the UK that Hitachi have decided to buy the sites that are owned by Horizon Nuclear Power.
We do not want the Shepperdine site to become another Fukushima. We are in touch with various environmental bodies and a Japanese labour union called Doro Chiba to try and get a full understanding of what they know about Hitachi.
We undrestand that the reactor will have to go through the full Generic Design Assessment and this will take up to four years.
Reg Illingworth of SANE says " It will be interesting to see if the government cave in to the energy companies and guarantee the massive subsidy that will be needed to build any new nuclear power stations in the UK"
"What will this do the coalition agreement ? We as taxpayers and electricity consumers had better get used to helping shareholders of Hitachi in receiving guaranteed dividends!"
