Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport John Whittingdale was shown the possible site for Bradwell B along with MEP Vicky Ford. Power company EDF Energy signed the heads of terms with China General Nuclear Power Corporation for the new power station last October. The Chinese company will provide two thirds of the development costs and hope to begin construction by 2023. The pair also visited the current Bradwell power station which is being decommissioned.
