Horizon statement on Hinkley Point C

horizon-logoHorizon Nuclear Power today welcomed the news from EDF as continuing progress in the UK nuclear new build programme.

Horizon Chief Operating Officer Alan Raymant said: “This is important in sustaining momentum behind the UK nuclear programme. Nuclear is a key part of our energy mix, delivering affordable, sustainable, reliable energy and this progress will boost confidence all round.” Regarding Horizon’s developments he said: “We’re progressing well in the development of designs, licensing and permissions activity, recruitment and supply chain development.

“We’re some way from our own price negotiations with Government, but when we get to that stage we are confident we’ll reach a deal that’s fair for bill payers and works for investors.

“Horizon will be a large scale independent power producer with no customers or trading arm, and we are focusing on making sure the EMR process works for that model.”
