Ireland's ESB Thinking About Nuclear Energy

That's ESB as in Electricity Supply Board, Ireland's largest electric utility. The following item ran this morning in RTE Business:

One interesting story over the weekend was the news that ESB would consider joining forces with a nuclear power producer. The company's chairman Tadhg O'Donoghue said the group was interested in all opportunities to produce power by all legal means. While the Government opposes nuclear power, O'Donoghue said realistically that would have to change. But he stressed that the company was neutral on the issue and said the decision was one for the Government. Ireland already imports a small amount of nuclear power through an interconnector pipe with Britain.
