Hinckley Point C, not a done deal yet.

A final investment decision by EDF in the Hinkley Point C proposed Hinkley Point Nuclear Power Station in Somerset is finally expected tomorrow. Despite EDF’s massive investment on the site, Chinese involvement and the UK’s government backing, the decision is not a forgone conclusion given delays on the EPR at Flamanville and the company’s debt burden.

This comes only a week after planning permission was granted for the pylons that will distribute the power from the plant (see previous Nuclear Matters article).
