AREVA welcomes the European Commission’s approval of the Hinkley Point C project, which plans for the construction of two EPR reactors in the United Kingdom.
The Commission’s decision confirms Britain’s energy vision that focuses on the complementarity of nuclear and renewable energy to provide the country with a competitive and sustainable energy mix. This is positive signal for nuclear investors in Europe.
The reactors at Hinkley Point C will be the 5th and 6th in the series of EPR reactors and will consolidate the leadership of French nuclear industry in the third generation nuclear reactor market.
