Five members of the senior management team at East Lothian Council visited EDF Energy’s Torness power station to find out more about how nuclear energy works and how the station contributes to the local economy.

The group had a tour of the station, taking in the reactor hall, the turbine hall and the five star visitor centre, led by station director, Paul Winkle.

Paul said, “It is really important to me that we have a good working relationship with East Lothian Council and that the senior management team can see what we do here. With 550 staff and an additional 200 or so contractors working here, we are the biggest private employer in the area.”
