EDF Energy has restated its commitment to building Sizewell C power station as its nuclear development boss outlined a timetable for the works. Humphrey Cadoux-Hudson told a packed Global Engineering Congress in London that a third round of consultation on the controversial scheme will begin in January 2019. A planning application for Sizewell C could be submitted in 2020 and the ideal time for construction to begin would be at the end of 2021, he said. The firm hopes the works can mirror closely its works at Hinkley Point C in Somerset, currently home to a 3,300-strong construction team and making “good progress” towards its next 2019 milestone – the completion of the 4,500 tonne concrete platform on which the reactor buildings sit.
