We are glad to report that the Hinkley Supply Chain Team continues to grow the value of South West supplier content by offering a supplier matching service for EDF Energy
and HPC contractors and by delivering tailored support and advice to suppliers through its Hinkley Supply Chain Programme. The activity is funded by EDF Energy, the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership, West of England Combined Authority and from early March we are delighted to also now have the support from the Welsh Government for businesses in South Wales.
The Hinkley Supply Chain Programme, led by
Programme Lead Nick Golding of SWMAS Ltd has now engaged with 19 Tier 1 contractors, assessed 99 work package opportunities and promoted 2095 supplier matches for these requirements. We estimate some 250 suppliers in the South West have already benefited from work associated with Hinkley Point C with a current pipeline of circa £200 million being supported with relevant suppliers being promoted."
This newsletter highlights achievements on the HPC site, updates on recent contracts and supplier case studies with information on skills support and supplier workshops.
