Spotlight on: Sizewell C

We’re proud to play our part in the campaign to Build British Nuclear. The Sizewell C Consortium draws together nuclear and green energy leaders with one united objective, to drive the commissioning of Sizewell C.

#BuildBritishNuclear

The UK Government has now granted development consent to progress Sizewell C, which is great news for British nuclear.

Sizewell C will provide 25,000 employment opportunities and 1,000 apprenticeships across the supply chain during its construction, as well as generate enough clean energy once commissioned to power over 6 million homes.

Extensive supply chain capability

“As we balance the need for greater energy security with our climate goals, the case for new nuclear has never been clearer.

Building on the legacy of Hinkley Point C by getting going with Sizewell C is the first step in that journey. Sizewell C will demonstrate the benefits of replication by building on the existing supply chain and learnings from HPC.

It is an exciting time for nuclear in the UK.”

About the Consortium

Over 200 companies have signed up to the Sizewell C Consortium in response to their call for the Nuclear and green energy industries to come together to campaign for Britain’s nuclear industry.

Planning permission to build Sizewell C will play an important part in the UK’s low carbon evolution plans.

Strengthening Nuclear job opportunities

NRL’s Recruitment and Contracting teams have over 35 years expertise working within the Nuclear industry, connecting Britain’s workforce with the job opportunities.

“Sizewell C will provide long-term career opportunities not just for existing Nuclear workers, but for the entire supply chain – as well as opening doors for those new to nuclear new build.

There’s never been a more crucial time to secure the future of British Nuclear as the Government considers the commissioning of Sizewell C.”

​With the valued assistance of NRL’s Heysham team we were able to ensure all 166 outage contractors entering site were cleared for access – no mean feat when faced with a global pandemic.

Their continued support ensured that all inductions and safety processes were understood, with excellent communication throughout the statutory outage programme to deliver a smooth onboarding process and relieve some of the pressure normally felt during outages.
