UK Nuclear Power Plants

United Kingdom -- The UK is seeing a future that is very dependent on nuclear power plants.

The construction sector in the UK is set to grow significantly over the next five years, but it is all dependent on three huge projects - two nuclear power plants and a transportation project.  

Steve Radley of CITB said, "We expect construction to keep defying the economic headwinds, with almost half of its growth coming from Hinkley, HS2, Wylfa, and other infrastructure projects."  He continued, "These huge projects give our industry a great chance to seize the initiative on skills and start investing in the next generation and upskilling the current one.  So, it's vital that we don't throw this opportunity away by allowing these projects to slip or get squeezed together and worsen the pressure on key skills."
