No Lockdown for Nuclear Construction Projects – Trident, Sellafield, Hinkley C

Hinkley C construction still continues despite the obvious close proximity of the workforce – it should be scrapped altogether but continuing with this construction when the public and small businesses are ‘locked down’ because of Covid19 makes no sense. EDF say they have halved the workforce to 2000 “The French utility has also decided to shut its Bristol head office, put people on a work from home scheme and carry out temperature checks as a further preventive measures while keeping nuclear capability intact. The project will preserve the UK’s specialist nuclear supply chain and its skilled workers by focusing on critical work on nuclear parts of the project. Keeping this capability intact is essential for a project of critical national importance and an industry which plays a key role in helping the UK reach net zero.”

There you have it – Nuclear is “essential” – for what though? Trident? Certainly not to protect the public. Nuclear makes the planet burn faster and hotter.
