Bearing in mind that NuGen is proposing to build 3 AP1000 reactors at Moorside, the total collective dose for Moorside would be about 40 person Sv per year. By applying the widely used fatal cancer risk factor of 10% per sievert we can calculate around 4 deaths will occur somewhere in the world for every year the station operates. Over 60 years the total would be 240 deaths. Moorside would produce extremely high levels of radioactive spent fuel. In the year 2200 its spent fuel arisings would amount to 85% of the radioactivity contained in all existing legacy wastes from the UK’s nuclear power industry.
