ESB Chief talks nuclear

ESB CEO, Padraig McManus today claimed that while we can rule out an independent nuclear solution for Ireland, that we must look at the possibility of a nuclear plant as part of the UK network.

In a speech to the Magill Summer School in Donegal, the ESB supremo claimed that if we did not get a 'clean coal' solution that Ireland would need a nuclear option. His speech seemed to indicate that given the size of our market that it was not economically viable to build a nuclear power station in Ireland.

Such an option would rely heavily on interconnection between the UK and Irish grid.
