Hinkley Point C to go ahead after EDF board approves project

Britain is set to get its first new nuclear power station for a generation after EDF’s directors voted in favour of building Hinkley Point C.

After a decade of debate about the controversial £18bn project, the EDF board approved the project by 10 votes to seven, according to reports in Paris.

The UK government, which has backed the project heavily, will welcome EDF’s commitment as a vote of confidence in the economy after the country voted to leave the EU in June.

The construction of Hinkley Point C will create an estimated 25,000 jobs, with completion scheduled for 2025. It will provide 7% of Britain’s electricity, enough power for six million homes, for almost 60 years.
