1700 hundred workers needed to finish Hinkley
About 4 Months, 4 Weeks, 1 Day, 13 Hours, 15 Minutes ago.
Another 1,700 workers are to be hired over the next year to help build the Hinkley C nuclear power plant in Somerset
The new roles will bring the total working on the site to more than 7,000, according to EDF, the French energy firm leading the project.
The plant is due to open in June 2026 and not in 2025 as planned and will cost between £22bn and £23bn.
But critics have pointed out that Hinkley's energy will be expensive.
