EDF Energy Signs Final Agreements for $23.4 billion Hinkley Point C Project in UK
Sep 30 16
EDF Energy has signed final agreements with the UK government and its Chinese partner China General Nuclear Corporation (CGN) for the development of the proposed £18 billon Hinkley Point C nuclear project in Somerset, UK. The signing follows approval by the UK government for the construction of two EPR reactors based on third generation pressurized water reactor (PWR) design, for the nuclear project. Expected to provide reliable, low carbon electricity to meet 7% of the UKâ s future electricity needs, the project is said to be a major step forwards tackling climate change while providing significant boost for industry in UK and France. The contracts cover delivery of the two nuclear steam supply systems, from design and supply to commissioning. Additionally, Areva NP will be responsible for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the plantâ s operational and safety instrumentation and control system. In addition to signing long-term fuel supply agreement to serve the two reactors, Areva will provide the material for the fuel fabrication, producing uranium as well as conversion and enrichment services.
