Richter becomes a member of the Sizewell C Consortium.
Richter is officially a member of the Sizewell C Consortium. Since it's launch in July 2020, the consortium has gone from strength to strength, and along with the other 250 companies and organisations from all over the UK, Richter is rising to the challenge of getting Sizewell C built for Britain.
Sizewell C is a proposed new British nuclear power station that will be built on the Suffolk coast, supplying power to six million homes, generating electricity for 60 years, and could save nine million tonnes of carbon emissions for each year of operation compared to a gas fired power station. It is said to take nine to twelve years to build, creating over 25,000 job opportunities.
The new power station will be a replica of Hinkley Point C (HPC) in Somerset, currently under construction where Richter continues to provide technical services to this project through pragmatic temporary works solutions and delivery of construction sequences. We have site based staff supporting this project in both Temporary Works Engineers and Temporary Works Co-ordinators.
Richter is proud to support the Sizewell C project, and shall draw upon our experiences gained at HPC and will do all that we can to ensure we construct to the maximum ethical standard to get Sizewell C built for Britain.
