Sizewell C: Power For Britain

 Registration is closed for this event
A FREE IMechE talk for the public by Derek Harper, Chief Engineer, Atkins.

It will be a close copy of Hinkley Point C which is already underconstruction in Somerset. These new power stations will play a key role in our energy future, supplying reliable, clean electricity far into the future.
