Sizewell C join Company Membership Scheme

The Nuclear Institute is delighted to welcome Sizewell C to its Company Membership Scheme. 

Sizewell C is the proposed site for a new nuclear power station in Suffolk, is expected to create 10,000 highly skilled jobs during construction and provide reliable, low-carbon power for the equivalent of 6 million homes for at least 60 years.

It was announced in November 2022 that the UK Government would provide £679m investment to support the project’s continued development.

Company membership of the Nuclear Institute demonstrates to employees and stakeholders that organisations are committed to developing nuclear professionalism by building loyal, informed teams through ongoing professional development.

The scheme provides a tailored service to companies, providing employees with Nuclear Institute membership, discounted rates for events and support for professional membership and registration. Engaging with the Institute’s member and volunteer networks helps to establish stronger links between individual organisations and the thriving UK nuclear community.

Julia Pyke, Director of Sizewell C Financing & Economic Regulation, commented:

Sizewell C is delighted to join the Nuclear Institute and support its work to promote understanding of the benefits of nuclear power, to encourage young people in the industry and to get the best, diverse, talent to join our efforts to provide clean, affordable energy security.”

Speaking about the UK Government’s investment announcement in Sizewell C, Jas Sidhu, President of the Nuclear Institute added:

"Sizewell C is a vital pillar of the UK's energy security strategy and will help ensure the country can be less reliant on fossil fuels. New nuclear power stations, large and small, are vital for us to reach our Net Zero targets. Let’s not forget, Net Zero needs nuclear”.

About Sizewell C

Proposals for Sizewell C will see the creation of a 3.2-gigawatt power station to provide low-carbon electricity which doesn’t rely on the weather. Sizewell C will be built next to Sizewell B which began operating in 1995 and has so far avoided more than 76 million tonnes of carbon emissions.

The EPR reactor design has been approved by the UK’s nuclear regulator, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR). This means it satisfies Britain’s high and robust standards for nuclear safety.
