UK Economic Benefits and Supply Chain
From the outset of the project, there has been a strong commitment to help develop and support the UK supply chain in taking advantage of the substantial opportunity.
Our aim remains to ensure that UK companies of all sizes benefit from the contracts associated with the project. And by doing so, we are ensuring that Hinkley Point C receives the best of British industry and maximises the opportunity for domestic employment and export earnings.
Hinkley Point C presents a real opportunity to our UK suppliers and the engineering, manufacturing and construction skills base. At present, 64% of the value of HPC is committed to UK-based companies and we have been encouraged by the quality and collaboration that we’ve seen from the UK supply chain that has allowed this to become a reality.
