Businesses from across Suffolk are being invited to hear how they could benefit from a multi-million pound contracts bonanza should the proposed Sizewell C nuclear power station get the go-ahead.
EDF Energy and Suffolk Chamber of Commerce are hosting a free business breakfast at Trinity Park, Ipswich, on Friday to explain the process and opportunities on offer.
More than 1,000 firms have already signed up to be considered for deals connected with the construction of the £14billion power plant, which will provide 25,000 jobs during the building phase, with 900 permanent roles once the station is producing energy.
At the breakfast, Jim Crawford, Sizewell C project development director, will outline the latest proposals for Sizewell C and how EDF Energy is working alongside Suffolk Chamber of Commerce to ensure regional businesses make the most of the opportunity a project of this scale brings to the region.
Mr Crawford said: “This event provides a good opportunity for local businesses to learn more about the Sizewell C project and how they can get involved. I am very much looking forward to meeting local business people at the event.”

Chamber chief executive John Dugmore said: “Suffolk Chamber has a close working relationship with EDF Energy and our belief is clear: the nuclear industry is good for Suffolk and good for businesses here in Suffolk.”
“Remember, 80% of the work in building and running a nuclear power station comes from ‘non-nuclear’ businesses.

“I would urge every business in Suffolk to think about the opportunities that Sizewell C presents to them and sign up to the supply chain website sooner rather than later.
“Sizewell C promises to be a business power house as well as a new power station.”
