In reaction to the Government’s Nuclear Skills Taskforce launch, (link), the Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, Tom Greatrex, said:
“Re-establishing ourselves as world leaders in nuclear energy gives us an incredible opportunity to supercharge the nuclear skills sector and supply chain. The civil nuclear sector already makes a huge contribution to the UK economy, and we hope this Taskforce will go a long way in helping us reach the 200,000 or so jobs needed to deliver 24 GW of nuclear capacity by 2050.
“What we need now is a clear plan from Government detailing a programme of new stations, both large and small modular reactors, so we can deliver on jobs and energy security.”
