Britain's Energy Coast Construction Skills Centre
Britain’s Energy Coast in partnership with Nuclear Management Partners is investing £4m in this new centre at Lakes College, Lillyhall, which will equip hundreds of people with the skills needed to deliver a wide variety of construction projects, in particular those related to the energy sector.
Port of Workington
Britain’s Energy Coast in partnership with Nuclear Management Partners and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority is investing £5.65m in a new container handling facility and supporting infrastructure that will enable the port to handle significant volumes of sea-borne container traffic and elevate this key local asset onto the European marine network.
Britain’s Energy Coast in partnership with Nuclear Management Partners has provided funding for a two-year programme to develop, support and promote the tourism offer in West Cumbria. West Cumbria Tourism is responsible for delivering the project, which seeks to celebrate the area’s rich and varied offer to visitors around the world.
Almost £3m of funding from Britain’s Energy Coast will help to pave the way for this major commercial office complex development in the heart of Whitehaven by covering the costs of land purchase and site remediation. Once completed in late 2013 around 900 workers will move to the complex from the Sellafield site.
