스코틀랜드, 새로운 세대의 원자력 발전소에 대한 손실 위험




심벌 마크새로운 원자력 발전소는 스코틀랜드와 달리 Hinkley Point, Oldbury, Wylfa, Heysham, Sellafield, Hartlepool, Sizewell 및 Bradwell에 건설될 가능성이 높으며 GMB에 따르면 이들은 계획 및 투자 문제를 계속 진행하고 있습니다.

스코틀랜드 에너지 노동조합인 GMB는 Hunterston B와 Torness를 대체할 계획이 없기 때문에 스코틀랜드가 차세대 원자력 발전소를 놓칠 위험이 있다고 경고했습니다. 두 시설 모두 현재 2023년에 퇴역할 예정입니다. GMB는 이는 스코틀랜드 정부의 에너지 수요 충족 방법에 대한 전략과 비전이 부족하기 때문이라고 말했습니다.

이 경고는 스코틀랜드에서 두 개의 원자력 발전소를 운영하는 EDF가 Somerset의 Hinkley Point에 새로운 원자력 발전소를 건설하기로 합의했다는 발표 이후에 나온 것입니다. 언론 성명서 사본은 편집자 참고 사항을 참조하세요.

GMB 스코틀랜드 수석 조직자인 Jim Moohan은 다음과 같이 말했습니다: “Hinkley Point C에서 진행되는 이번 추진은 스코틀랜드가 차세대 신규 원자력 발전소를 놓칠 심각한 위험에 대한 경각심을 불러일으키는 역할을 해야 합니다.

“As things stand it is likely that the next generation of power stations will be built at Hinkley Point, Oldbury, Wylfa in Angelsea, Heysham, Sellafield, Hartlepool, Sizewell in Suffolk and Bradwell in Essex as they are getting on with the planning and investment issues.

“By contract the First Minister is hanging on to the coattails of the UK Government on the nuclear question without giving clear indication to the Scottish people what safeguards he has in place for the long term.

“The renewables factor will not sustain our energy requirements. It is time the pressure groups and politicians who continually put down the nuclear sector come clean as to how they would address our energy needs in the long term.


“The stark reality is that Hunterston, commissioned in 1976, and Torness, commissioned in 1988, will have to be decommissioned in 2023 after four decades of successful operation.

“The First Minister and the opponents totally ignored this history of success.  The skill loss at these stations will be devastating to the Scottish economy unless we get on with making a replacement decisions.

“The First Minister has to come clean on his strategy. This must be supported by substance and facts, with supporting evidence of how the Scottish Government intends to protect our energy supply and with what means they intend to carry this out.

“GMB is clear that a nuclear build programme is vital to the Scottish economy. It has a proven track record of clean and carbon free vital for the balanced energy policy Scotland needs.

“There is a fantastic opportunity for job growth within the area which will create a new wealth of apprenticeships for the future with technical experience and the creation of thousands of jobs within the construction sector alongside a multi-billion pound boost for the economy.

“The other energy giants within the Scottish economy continue to look at ways of reducing the carbon emission to adhere to EU legislation.  There is a clear message coming through that nuclear with its track record is vital for the continuation of a viable economy within Scotland and­ as part of the UK sector.

“The safety within the nuclear sector within the UK has been dramatically improved from the outset of the establishment of that Industry and continues to thrive on as zero tolerance on health and safety.”
