New website launched to boost economic benefits from Hinkley Point C Supply Chain

A new website has been launched to make it even easier for local businesses to benefit from the opportunities being delivered by Hinkley Point C.

Designed and operated by the Hinkley Supply Chain team, which is run by Somerset Chamber of Commerce, the new site provides a link for local firms looking for routes into the project. It also steers existing Hinkley Point C contractors looking for high-quality local and regional suppliers directly to the information they need.

The Hinkley Supply Chain team has been working in partnership with the project since the beginning of construction. It works to maximise the opportunities for businesses in Somerset, the South West and South Wales.

Scott Jenkins, Hinkley Supply Chain Lead and Somerset Chamber of Commerce Project Manager, said “We have delivered a modern, easy to navigate website, which highlights the opportunities available on Britain’s biggest net zero project. 

“The Hinkley Supply Chain team can help anyone who is interested in getting involved with the project. To find out more, please visit our website and register online or contact me

The Hinkley Point C project has invested more than £4 billion into companies in the South West, with millions of pounds worth of contracts still available. The project has prioritised local and regional suppliers, to leave a legacy of economic growth, jobs, and skills.

Andrew Cockcroft, Senior Stakeholder Relations Manager, Hinkley Point C, said: “We have already seen huge socio-economic benefits delivered to the region through Hinkley Point C and remain committed to continuing our focus on maximising local opportunity. The upgraded website will be an incredibly useful aid for those looking to take advantage of the opportunities throughout the supply chain.”

The Hinkley Supply Chain works to help local and regional companies win contracts by highlighting their capabilities to the main HPC contractors. However, the team can only act on behalf of firms which are registered on the Hinkley Supply Chain portal.

It is free to register on the supply chain portal and for more information companies should visit the new website at or contact the team by emailing or telephoning 01823 443425.
