Regulators to assess new nuclear reactor design

The ONR and the Environment Agency has received a formal request from the Minister of State for Energy to start generic design assessment work on a new nuclear reactor for the UK.  The aim is to ensure that it meets high standards of safety, security, environmental protection and waste management.

This project, when built will be the first of its kind in the UK and will set the standard for future works.
