EDF Awards Atkins £5m Contract for Enabling Works at Sizewell C Nuclear Power Station
26 Jul 2019
EDF have awarded engineering contractor Atkins a contract worth £5 million to work on the basic design of enabling works for the proposed Sizewell C nuclear power station in Suffolk.
A major remit of the works is for Atkins to reduce project costs to EDF by 20%, which it is hoped will be made possible by replicating construction techniques and design solutions from Hinkley Point C in Somerset.
The proposed Sizewell C would be built directly to the north of the existing Sizewell B nuclear power station, and would comprise two 1,670 MW EPR reactors capable of supplying 20% of the UK’s electricity.
Sizewell C is currently at stage 4 of public consultations, after which EDF will submit an application to the Planning Inspectorate for development consent for the nuclear new build development.
