East Devon businesses are being urged to find out about the opportunities on offer when work starts on Hinkley Point C, the first new nuclear power station for a generation.
A diverse range of goods, services and materials will be required when EDF Energy and its partner investors are expected start the multi-billion construction.
The materials will come from all services, ranging from construction services, mechanical and electrical equipment to catering, accommodation and transport services.
