Government sets out plans to build eight more nuclear power stations

The Government has set out plans to build eight more nuclear power stations in its energy security strategy published today.

The ambitious energy expansion would see:

– 25% or up to 24 GW of UK electricity produced from nuclear power by 2050.
– Speed up planning, aiming on average to approve a scheme each year to 2030.
– Involve backing construction of the planned two reactors at Sizewell C in Suffolk as the next new scheme after the 3.2GW Hinkley Point project in Somerset.
– Other sites mentioned as candidates for nuclear reactors include Wylfa in Anglesey and Oldbury in Cumbria.

The Rolls-Royce Small Modular Reactor (SMR) business includes BAM and Laing O’Rourke among its main supply chain partners.
