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.
East Devon District Council’s (EDDC) Business Centre in Honiton is holding information sessions for businesses interested in the huge contract.
The next event is being held on Thursday, April 14.
Councillor Phillip Skinner, EDDC’s portfolio holder for economy, said: “Businesses have got nothing to lose, now’s the time to find out about the contract opportunities and how to be part of this massive project.
“Businesses in East Devon are well placed to provide all manner of goods and services and should tap into the assistance that’s available to help local businesses to become supply chain ready.”
