Russia’s Rosatom eyes UK Horizon nuclear project

Russia’s state owned power company Rosatom is said to be considering taking a stake in the UK’s Horizon nuclear project.

Last month Horizon’s original partners RWE and E.ON both pulled out, citing financial constraints in their home country of Germany, and Horizon was put up for sale.

Now Rosatom's director of communications Sergey Novikov has told the UK’s Daily Telegraph newspaper: “The British market is potentially attractive for Rosatom. Rosatom can give all guarantees that the construction of a NPP [nuclear power plant] in the UK will meet absolutely all international safety requirements and International Atomic Energy Agency standards.”

Horizon involves building power stations in Anglesey in Wales and Oldbury in England.
