Britain should commit to building the Sizewell C nuclear power station being planned by French and Chinese investors to help safeguard supply chain jobs, a newly formed industrial consortium says. France’s EDF and China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) IPO-CGNP.HK are 80% and 20% shareholders in the pre-construction phase of the project, which is expected to cost 18 billion pounds ($21-22.5 billion). EDF submitted an application in May to British regulators to build the plant in East Suffolk on England’s east coast.
