New engineering design centre strengthens Britain’s nuclear expertise

A new engineering design centre in Bristol has opened to support the next phase of construction at the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station. Led by EDF, around 700 people from different companies from the UK and abroad will be employed there by 2021. It will bring an additional 300 jobs to Britain to support the design, construction and commissioning of UK EPR nuclear reactors at Hinkley Point C in Somerset and Sizewell C in Suffolk.
