Rosatom looks at Horizon opportunity

Russia’s state-owned nuclear energy enterprise Rosatom has said it would propose building the Generation III+ PWR 1200-MWe NPP 2006 in the UK.

Rosatom is so far the only company to confirm an interest in the Horizon Nuclear Power after Horizon’s German owners announced plans to withdraw from the UK nuclear market March 29 and put Horizon up for sale.

Westinghouse, which was hoping Horizon Nuclear Power would choose its AP1000 reactor for construction, said March 29 it planned to engage with Horizon over the next few weeks “to determine the best direction for continuing the development of these projects and to explore alternative investors in the company.” But Mike Tynan, chief executive of Westinghouse UK, said April 11 he couldn’t comment further.
