Sizewell C nuclear power plant seeks approval for construction in UK

French energy firm EDF is seeking regulatory consent to start construction on twin EPR nuclear reactors capable of generating 3.2GW. Sizewell C will be the sister plant of Hinkley Point C and so is expected to have lower construction costs. The power plant is expected to play an important role in the UK’s goal of net zero carbon emissions. Critics have raised concerns about possible cost overruns.
