Supporting Business and the Economy
The construction of Hinkley Point C represents a unique opportunity for UK suppliers to develop their expertise in high-quality nuclear construction – capability that is transferable to other engineering projects across the world, including Sizewell C in Suffolk.
These suppliers represent the whole UK, from the company in South Wales supplying pressure vessels to the business on Teesside making £90m of hi-tech nuclear components.
We’ve worked hard to ensure that companies from across the country, not only in the South West, have been able to compete and win contracts. For example, companies in the North and Midlands have been awarded almost £1.1 billion in contracts, which will increase as the project continues.
We have worked hard to maintain and support the Hinkley Point C supply chain through the coronavirus crisis so that our suppliers remain in business and are able to play their part in helping the country’s economic recovery.
