The potential build of a new power station at Sizewell in Suffolk brings huge possibilities to companies and individuals across East Anglia. Investments of £4.5 billion will be spent in the region as well as 900 permanent jobs created. The project is looking forward to sign-off in Spring 2022 and aims to put the ‘Spade in the Ground’ by January 2023.

In this podcast episode we talk to three expert Sizewell B & C managers:

Mark Scrancher
Lifetime Programmes (LTO) and Sizewell C Interface Manager
Sizewell B Power Station

Sean Verrall
Technical and Safety Support Manager
Sizewell B Power Station

Steven Carroll
Sizewell C Senior Supply Chain Lead

The team advises on how businesses can prepare to pitch or tender for work with Sizewell C and stresses the importance of contractors being able to display existing high standards which should be supported by national compliance certifications. They also talk about what to expect during the tender process and beyond, as well as give us an insight into their thorough induction training and ongoing management of in-bound contractors.

The discussion also covers protocols in place at Sizewell B for when something goes wrong, what that could look like and how these issues are avoided with their extraordinary open culture of ‘free to challenge’.

Sizewell B operates an environmental management system and currently recycles all waste on the power station site at a minimum of 99%.
