Frazer-Nash Consultancy has joined the Sizewell C Consortium, a group of more than 100 organisations from across the UK nuclear supply chain showcasing the potential economic opportunity and growth this new nuclear build project could bring to Britain.
In May, a Development Consent Order (DCO) application submitted by Sizewell C was accepted for examination by the Planning Inspectorate. The Sizewell C Consortium is highlighting the potential benefits that could arise from the project’s completion, including the delivery of £14 billion of investment in the UK economy, 25,000 jobs and power for six million homes.
Frazer-Nash Nuclear Business Manager, Chris Jones, said:
“Frazer-Nash is a Tier 1 supplier to nuclear primes, and has worked alongside many organisations in the Consortium, supporting both AGR and EPR technologies. We’re looking forward to being a collaborative member of the Sizewell C Consortium, and to sharing our extensive nuclear programme knowledge and UK regulatory experience.
“The UK government’s recently-announced ‘ten point plan for a green industrial revolution’ and Energy White Paper committed to delivering new and advanced nuclear power, including to pursuing large-scale nuclear projects. It highlighted the ongoing potential of the technology, together with next generation nuclear technologies such as small and advanced modular reactors, to both produce low carbon power and to contribute to job creation and growth.
“Sizewell C forms an important part of this vision, and could provide 3.2GW of low carbon power, supporting seven per cent of the UK’s energy needs and helping to make fundamental progress towards Net Zero by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.”
