Hinkley Point C will “play a major role in the UK’s low carbon energy mix” and also “relaunch nuclear in Europe”, according to EDF Energy’s boss of nuclear new build. Humphrey Cadoux-Hudson said that the new reactor in Somerset, England, will “play a crucial role in the battle against climate change”. Speaking at the Nuclear Industry Association’s annual conference in London, he said that EDF and its project partners were determined that Hinkley Point would play a role in reinvigorating the nuclear engineering sector and both the local and national economy. “We are committed to making Hinkley Point C an engine for regional growth,” he stated, adding that 64 per cent of construction spend on the project would go to UK companies.
