Rolls-Royce plans nuclear plants with EDF
LONDON (AFP) Engineering firm Rolls-Royce is to collaborate with French power firm EDF to build four new nuclear power plants, it said on Wednesday.

The European Pressurised Reactors are to be built at Hinkley Point and Sizewell. The first should be operational by the end of 2017, while all four should be on stream by 2025.

"The agreement covers engineering and technical support during both the pre- and post-construction phases," Rolls-Royce said, announcing the project with EDF Energy, the UK division of the French utility group.


Rolls-Royce announced plans in July to build a new factory to make systems and components for nuclear power stations, with strong links to a government-funded Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre.
