Stop Sizewell C! Wrong Project, Wrong Time, Wrong Place.

EDF’s plans to build two new nuclear reactors at Sizewell in east Suffolk will have a devastating impact on this unique and magical place.  There are better alternatives in the fight against Climate Change. EDF applied for planning consent on 27 May 2020. The process will take around 18 months.

Damning, damning and damning again! Amazing stuff!

"France’s state auditor has questioned the ability of the company building Britain's next nuclear power plant to construct new reactors within “acceptable” costs and timeframes.

State-owned EDF has already said that its Flamanville nuclear plant in Normandy will now cost €12.4bn due to the expense of fixing 66 faulty welds.

On top of that, the project will cost another €6.7bn, according to France’s Court of Accounts in a new report.

EDF has also said the plant’s start date will be delayed until the end of 2022. Flamanville was originally due to cost €3.3bn and start operations in 2012.

Presenting the damning 148-page report this week, Court of Accounts chief Pierre Moscovici said: “There is still uncertainty on the ability of the French nuclear industry, despite its current strong efforts, to build new nuclear reactors within a time frame and costs that remain acceptable.”

"The British government said on Friday it will invest 40 million pounds ($51 million) in developing and supporting small nuclear reactor projects.

The government said 30 million pounds of funding will go to support three advanced modular reactor (AMR) projects in Oxfordshire, Cheshire and Lancashire in England.

AMRs are smaller than traditional nuclear plants and use intense heat generated in nuclear reactions to produce low-carbon electricity.

They can be used in remote locations thanks to their size, and can produce enough energy to power anything from a small village to a medium-sized city.

The remaining funding will go smaller research, design, and manufacturing projects to create up to 200 jobs, the government said in a statement."

Great Op Ed by Paul Dorfman and Jeffrey Henderson

"While Hinkley C may be too far advanced to stop, cancellation of the Sizewell and Bradwell projects would send a very strong signal to president Xi that trashing the human rights norms of the liberal international order cannot be tolerated. It would also eliminate the security threats that CGN poses if it is allowed to participate in such a strategically vital industry as power supply."

Damning indeed. Who in their right minds would buy EDF's reactors? France’s state auditor questions EDF's ability to construct new reactors within “acceptable” costs and timeframes. Flamanville will cost another €6.7bn; it and Olkiluoto are a decade late!

Cllr Wood “We should be extremely proud of what we have here in Suffolk – our natural coast, the jewel in our crown and renowned the world over for its landscape, wildlife, flora and fauna, and should be doing all we can to protect it, not destroy it”

@edfenergy's chief executive won boardroom approval for #HinkleyC after "suppressing an internal review labelling it as risk- laden, according to France’s public accounts court. The Court of Audit said that #HinkleyC represented a “high financial risk.”

Dan Poulter is the first of Suffolk’s MPs to speak out against the £20billion Sizewell C project. Thank you! Let's hope he is not the last to do so #StopSizewellC @theresecoffey @peter_aldous @tomhunt1988 @MattHancock @Jochurchill4 @jc4southsuffolk https://t.co/ulzQfxU44G
