Nuclear plant for Teesside, UK?

British Energy has not ruled out building another nuclear power plant on Teesside, once an existing operation reaches the end of its life. A plant costing more than GBP 1 billion could be built next to the existing power station in Tees Road, Hartlepool, with construction starting about 2004. Doug McRoberts, public relations director at British Energy, said: “The aim would be to have the new power plant up and running before the existing station reaches the end of its life in 2014. “British Energy has identified seven potential sites for a new nuclear power station around the UK, and Hartlepool is one of them.”
