Bosses behind a new nuclear power station have told local communities they are “listening” after making “important” changes to the plans. The government is close to approving construction of Sizewell C in Suffolk. EDF Energy has pledged to increase rail and sea deliveries during construction and reduce the plant’s impact on local beauty spots. Alison Downes from the Stop Sizewell C campaign said the project was “ridiculously expensive”. A 30-day public consultation starts on Wednesday.

Framatome has joined the Sizewell C Consortium, a group of more than 100 companies and organisations from across the UK working to design, supply and construct the proposed nuclear power station in Suffolk, England. “Working with the passionate and expert members of the Sizewell C Consortium, we are engaging new partnerships with British companies and suppliers to support lifetime management of the country’s existing nuclear facilities and new build projects,” said Marc Duret, managing director of Framatome in the UK. Framatome said it is supporting the UK to reach its 2050 net zero target by contributing to the construction of two EPR reactors at Hinkley Point C and two at the proposed Sizewell C nuclear power plant. Framatome assists maintenance and long-term operations at Sizewell B.
