EDF’s dubious plan to finance Sizewell C nuclear build will actually increase costs

Dave Toke’s Blog 13th Jan 2020, EDF say they want to start building Sizewell C in 2022 because they will save money through transferring staff from building Hinkley C.
This sounds  a very dubious argument for the simple reason that building another two units of their ‘European Pressurised Reactor’ (EPR) at the same time as Hinkley will put even greater pressure on staff resources – which are very scarce in the highly specialised nuclear industry – and lead to increased

problems and costs, not savings.
