Bradwell B granted electricity generating licence
Bradwell Power Generation Company Limited, which is proposing to construct the new Bradwell B nuclear power plant in Essex, has been granted an electricity generating licence by the UK's gas and electricity markets regulator Ofgem. A final decision has yet to be made to actually construct the plant, planned to feature a Chinese-designed Hualong One reactor.
The company in June this year submitted its application to Ofgem for an electricity generating licence, which is required by all electricity generating companies. The application was accepted for consideration by Ofgem, which made it available for public consultation on its website. The closing date for comments was 18 August.
