Energy Act 2004

Section 23: Borrowing by the NDA

111.Section 23 sets out the framework for the NDA to borrow from the Secretary of State. This is principally to enable the NDA to support the carrying on of normal business practices which optimise the contractual arrangements which are necessary to support the decommissioning, clean up and operational activity of the persons with control of designated sites, installations and facilities which it funds.

112.Subsections (4) and (5) allow the NDA to borrow from other sources so that it could consider entering into PFI arrangements for particular projects, subject to the approval of the Secretary of State and the Treasury.
