The start-up is a milestone in B&W’s nuclear program as the station is among the largest investor-owned nuclear power plants in operation. North America’s first refuse-to-energy plant, built by B&W, begins operation in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

  In The Fall and Rise of Nuclear Power in Britain, Simon Taylor looks at why these hopes were never realised, and how we have come to see a new rise in nuclear power in recent years. Throughout the book, Tay In the s, Britain was a pioneer in civil nuclear power and there were high hopes that this could be a source of cheap electricity and a /5(1).   The U.K. government has put nuclear at the center of effort to attract billions of pounds of investment in new power plants as old reactors are retired in the coming years.
