Sizewell C has become a key firm for the nuclear supply chain in the industry, warn many companies. They also intimate that around 10,000 high-skilled jobs will be lost, in case Sizewell C is not accepted in the major projects.
As many as a quarter to a third of their staff could be at risk, said some smaller firms with estimations. So the government needs to clearly think over the Sizewell C and its continuation. These warnings include a 100-strong group of leading firms in the industry.
The warnings are a sequence to the chances that impact losing another major nuclear scheme after Hitachi abandoned the Wylfa project in Anglesey. Major firms addressed the issue of nuclear supply chain fears including Atkins, BAM, Arup, Balfour Beatty, Mace, Laing O’Rourke, Wood, and William Hare.
Besides, the Government is looking at options for how to financially support the EDF developed project, and so the issue related to nuclear supply chain loss arises. EDF has called on the government for building more projects after launching a new regulated asset base (RAB) funding model.
