Construction and operation of Hinkley Point C will create 25,000 employment opportunities, up to 1,000 apprenticeships and 64% of the project’s construction value is predicted to go to UK companies. There are currently over 3,100 workers on site.
Marking a significant milestone in the revitalisation of our nuclear power industry, Hinkley Point C will make a major contribution to the UK’s move to reduce carbon emissions. The electricity generated by its two EPR reactors will offset 9 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year, or 600 million tonnes over its 60-year lifespan.
CLA members will have a guided coach tour of the site covering pretty much everything you could know about the project! We will meet in the EDF Energy store in Bridgwater shopping centre where parking is pay and display and the coach will collect and drop us back.
For those of you who toured Hinkley Point B this will be a natural sequel.
