Magnox Electric, the state owned nuclear power company, has hired
independent Brussels-based lobbyist Cabinet Stewart to conduct an audit
of issues facing the company in Europe.
The win comes via an informal link-up between Cabinet Stewart and
Magnox’s UK agency Fishburn Hedges, which has been developed in the last
Cabinet Stewart will report directly to Magnox.Both agencies will be
dealing with environment and planning issues, energy policies and
proposals for a European energy tax. Brussels was previously covered
in-house by Magnox, which was established in March last year.
Magnox owns and operates a number of older nuclear power stations
previously run by Nuclear Electric and Scottish Nuclear prior to their
privatisation as British Energy. It is also responsible for dismantling
the advanced gas-cooled reactor at Sellafield and is due to merge with
reprocessing company BNFL by April 1998.
