£10 Billion Guarantee for Hinkley Point C in UK
UK Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander has announced a vast new civil works project in the UK, which includes guarantees running some £10 Billion for construction of two UK-EPR nuclear plants at a to-be-built Hinkley Point C nuclear station. Seen above, courtesy EDF, is an artists' conception of the public footpath and seawall to be built at the station; the two new nuclear units' turbine buildings are seen at right as the two largest buildings visible.
