The director of Sizewell B nuclear power station has been appointed to oversee the development of a proposed third plant on the Suffolk coast.

Jim Crawford, currently station director at Sizewell B, has been handed the role of project development director for EDF Energy’s Sizewell C.

An EDF spokeswoman said: “The new role takes effect from March 1 and will see Jim take responsibility for leading the Sizewell C project to a successful final investment decision and into construction.”

Sizewell B, which recently marked 21 years of generating electricity, is not due to be decommissioned for another 19 years.

EDF Energy is expected to begin its Stage Two Consultation process for Sizewell C this year.
