Sizewell C Supply Chain

Sizewell C has moved a step closer to starting construction after the Government gave planning consent for the new power station in Suffolk.

The DCO application was submitted in May 2020 and sets out the range of measures the project will take to mitigate the effects of construction and maximise the benefits for local communities.

More than one thousand interested parties and statutory consultees gave evidence during the public examination which ran from April to October last year.

The decision is the biggest milestone so far in the approval process for Sizewell C. It follows four rounds of public consultation which began in 2012 and involved more than 10,000 East Suffolk residents.

As part of its procurement strategy for Sizewell C, EDF Energy has partnered with Suffolk Chamber of Commerce to identify and support local businesses that want to become part of the supply chain.

Suffolk Chamber’s Sizewell C Supply Chain Team is the first point of contact for business and agencies wishing to engage in the project. The website forms the central resource for all Suffolk businesses who wish to make the most of the opportunities arising out of the development.

The scope of the project is vast, with opportunities for diverse local companies to get involved, covering everything from concrete to catering, metal fabrication, transport and landscaping.
