This event has taken place.

26th May 2021

As part of Women in Engineering day 2021, Sizewell C would like to invite you to virtually meet some top female engineers and scientists that work on the project. Sizewell C is the new nuclear power station planned for the UK and would help tackle climate change by delivering low carbon electricity to 6million homes and save 9m tonnes of Co2 every year compared to a gas station.
