ICE response to Weightman nuclear review

Responding to Weightman's final review, Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) director general Tom Foulkes welcomed the report, saying industry can now move forward with the planned new build programme with renewed confidence.

"Nuclear is a vital part of the UK's energy mix – at present there is no other viable, low carbon alternative to replace baseload generation from gas and coal-fired plants set to come offline in the next decade.

"Weightman's review has rightly set the standards high for UK nuclear, putting the onus on industry to strive for continued improvements in safety and risk assessment. Ensuring these lessons are understood at every level of delivery is crucial to minimising project risks.

"ICE will be playing its part in meeting this challenge through its ongoing Nuclear Lessons Learnt programme, helping to capture lessons not only from Fukushima but from past projects across the world to ensure safer, more efficient delivery of nuclear power in the UK."
