EDF to host suppliers days for nuclear new-build subcontractors

7 Jul 10 EDF Energy will host two regional conferences in Somerset and Suffolk during July to explain its plans for new-build nuclear power stations, and roles that will be available for construction contractors.

EDF hosts suppliers day for nuclear new-build subcontractors The French-owned power giant plans to build four new UK reactors in the UK by 2025, with the first two at Hinkley Point in Somerset, followed by two reactors at Sizewell, Suffolk.

Work on the first Hinkley plant could start as early as next year.

The two events will be held in Bridgwater, Somerset, on 6 July and in Woodbridge, Suffolk, on 8 July. A national event will follow later in the year.

An EDF statement said: “The aim of the UK Supplier Day events is to ensure that local companies are aware of the opportunities that our investment plans will create. Presentations and panel sessions led by key EDF Energy staff from engineering, quality and procurement divisions will help companies understand the requirements and how they can get involved.”

Suppliers wishing to register for the event can do so on the EDF website.
