Reusing the exiting Hinkley Point C supply chain could shave 20% off of the cost of Sizewell C, according to a boss at EDF. Speaking at the Nuclear Industry Association conference in London, EDF non-executive chairman Colin Matthews said that it was important to keep the supply chain currently supporting Hinkley Point C active and ready to take on work for the new plant at Sizewell C. “A few decades ago after the last nuclear new build, the supply chain was starved of work,” he said. “What if this time, we do it differently? Having built Hinkley Point C, we were to reuse and develop our supply chain further and take on new work?” In total, 64% of the project value for Hinkley has been procured in the UK, that represents £10.6bn injected into the UK economy, and the south-west around Hinkley.

It is to be a twin of EDF’s new Hinkley Point plant – so what is actually coming for Sizewell? Watch, share and sign up to receive our updates, and get ready to help us hold EDF to account in caring for this special place when they share their new proposals in January.
