The government has recently backed the UK to undergo a nuclear renaissance as around a quarter of the UK's generating capacity is due to close by the end of this decade. Nuclear Power Stations have been selected as a suitable replacement as it will provide affordable and low carbon energy to our nation.
The proposal is to start constructing 8 new nuclear power stations over the next 25 years with the first to begin construction in 2013 at Hinkley Point C in Somerset. Each Power Station is going to require around £4 Billion investment with a work force during construction of around 5,000, creating 800 operational jobs once the construction has been completed per site.
Matchtech's Power and Nuclear team are already providing staff for the Pre-build or Design teams within the leading organisations involved in bringing the UK affordable and CO2 efficient energy. Matchtech are currently putting the foundations in place and are building to ensure that we will be providing temporary and permanent staff throughout the project lifecycle including construction, commissioning, operational and decommissioning stages.
