Bilfinger UK has leant its voice to calls for the government to back Sizewell C, the proposed nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast, as it looks to create jobs across the North West.
A total of 32 companies and organisations from across the UK have come together to urge approval for the infrastructure project.
These include Atkins, Balfour Beatty Bailey, Cavendish Nuclear, Doosan Babcock, EDF, Jacobs, Laing O’Rourke, Mott MacDonald and Mace.
The consortium believes Sizewell C will provide a major economic boost for the UK, worth approximately £14bn, and “set the country on the road to a green recovery”.
It intends to sign memorandum of understanding (MoU) to guarantee British jobs and investment.
Warrington-headquartered Bilfinger, which employs more than 2,500 staff, has backed the scheme after winning two contracts worth £350m for the design, procurement, supplier management, fabrication and construction of pipework and specialist equipment for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station.
