Rolls Royce to provide Hinkley Point nuclear reactors

Engineering giant Rolls Royce has today signed an “enhanced cooperation agreement” with nuclear reactor manufacturer Areva to provide equipment and services for new build site Hinkley Point worth £100M.

Energy firm EdF plans to build four Areva-designed European Pressurised Reactors across the UK meaning the total contract value could be worth up to £400M.

Today’s announcement follows on from an agreement struck between the firms last year for closer cooperation on nuclear projects.

EdF plans to build two reactors at Hinkley Point in Somerset and a further two reactors at Sizewell in Suffolk.
