Building Sizewell C

A large-scale project of this size will require hundreds of different suppliers, providing plenty of opportunity for people to get involved with Sizewell C over the coming years.

What is Sizewell C?

Sizewell C is the latest nuclear new build project, situated close to Sizewell B. Its 3.2 gigawatts capacity design is based on the new Hinkley Point C nuclear plant, that’s currently under construction, with expectations for more than 70,000 jobs across the length of the project.

Located in East Suffolk, the project is expected to benefit businesses and workers from across the UK, thanks to the nuclear industry’s wide-reaching supply chain.

Why is Sizewell C being built?

More clean energy production capacity is needed to meet net zero goals, and the new generation of nuclear fleet under construction for EDF Energy aims to increase nuclear energy production capacity whilst providing a greener alternative to rebalance our reliance on fossil fuel.
