WYG, along with North Associates which joined the WYG Group in October 2015, is a proud sole sponsor of the first Cumbria Nuclear Conference, hosted by John Stevenson MP taking place on 22 September at Carlisle Racecourse.
The event will attract Cumbria’s nuclear stakeholders from across the sector with speakers from NuGen and Nuclear Decommissioning Authority already confirmed.
As keen supporters of the regeneration on Cumbria’s West Coast, we realise the opportunity for county wide growth and positive change and have extensive nuclear programme and project management, town & country planning and environmental experience in the region.
Our local knowledge and presence is key for managing nuclear energy projects and when combined with national strength and a particular sector expertise, this provides a powerful mechanism to resolve complex technical problems.
Both WYG and North Associates already have strong partnerships with many large nuclear organisations including Sellafield, Britain’s Energy Coast (BEC), NuGen, as well as the nuclear supply chain and have successfully delivered a diverse portfolio of projects.
Our presence in Cumbria was established over 30 years ago to support the nuclear sector in West Cumbria, principally the Sellafield and Low Level Waste Repository sites. Since then we have expanded our capability to a wide range of disciplines and developed the unique set of skills and technical excellence that we bring to the Cumbria market, whilst also exporting nationally and abroad.
In October 2015, the acquisition of strategic asset management specialists, North Associates, consolidated our specialist offering across Cumbria and ideally positioned the business to seize opportunities from impending investments for both Britain’s Energy Coast and the Northern Powerhouse.
In July, WYG celebrated 10 years of safe nuclear decommissioning as part of the Cumbria Nuclear Solutions Limited (CNSL) consortium.
We are proud to play a role in Cumbria’s success as the UK Centre of Nuclear Excellence, and we are fervent advocates of supporting the expansion of this sector in this region.
