A £20m training centre for the nuclear industry is to be officially opened in west Cumbria.
Ed Miliband, secretary of state for energy and climate change, will unveil the Energus centre in Workington on Friday afternoon.
The site boasts construction and engineering workshops, IT rooms and a 200-seat lecture theatre.
It is linked to the University of Cumbria and offers foundation degree level qualifications.
Energus chairman Dr Ian Hudson said: "The services the centre will deliver and the top class facilities it encompasses gives west Cumbria a tremendous asset."
The centre, built on the Lillyhall Industrial Estate, is part of the National Skills Academy for Nuclear.
