Sizewell C could play a key role in “building back Britain” as it emerges from recession, according to the team behind the proposed multi-billion pound project. Managers at the Leiston site earmarked for a next-generation nuclear plant have expressed their delight that 1600 companies have so far registered interest in supplying the project – 1400 of which are regional firms versus 200 national ones. In addition, energy firm EDF has discovered that 200 of its Sizewell B suppliers have not yet registered their interest in supplying Sizewell C – possibly because they think they will be automatically registered. Suffolk Chamber is helping to get them on board too. EDF – the company behind the project – sees its potential to provide a major shot in the arm for the regional – as well as the national – economy, which is now in the grip of a recession.
