Davey hints China to help fund Hinkley nuclear plant

Energy Secretary Ed Davey has given a strong hint the Chinese could get involved in a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point.

In a television interview yesterday he said the Government is “extremely close” to a deal with EDF and also talked up trade links with China.

The comments appear to support reports Chinese General Nuclear Power Group (CGNP) could take a 49% stake in the project at Hinkley Point C.

The Energy Secretary said: “It is really possible we will see massive Chinese investment, not just in nuclear but across the board.”

Asked about a recent visit to China, he says he “saw all their nuclear companies, I talked to their government about Britain’s nuclear power and opportunities for British nuclear companies in China – and the Chinese, along with the Japanese and Koreans and other countries, are very interested in the opportunity in Britain’s nuclear sector.”
