Sizewell B marks 27 times of service

Sizewell B marks 27 times of service

Sizewell B, the UK’s youthful nuclear power station, turns 27 on Valentine’s Day.
The station was connected to the grid on 14 February 1995 and has produced enough electricity since also to power every home in Suffolk for 178 times!

The station has avoided 81m tonnes of CO2 going into the atmosphere – that’s the same as taking 38million buses off roads for a time.
Sizewell B has handed long term jobs as well as electricity generation over the decades icing that original people have access to satisfying careers in an area they love to live. Some of the platoon started work at Sizewell A before moving across to Sizewell B to progress their careers. The nuclear assiduity in Suffolk has handed generations of jobs and, subject to planning authorization, Sizewell C will continue that tradition alongside SizewellB.

Robert Gunn, Sizewell B Station Director, said “ I’m proud of our original platoon at the power station and the work they do to insure Sizewell B continues to induce the low carbon electricity that we all depend upon.”
Case study

Danny Bailey, Conservation Director
.Danny has been with the nuclear assiduity in Suffolk for 44 times. He chose to join Sizewell A as an apprentice having been offered internships with both the power station and Garretts, manufacturers of agrarian ministry and brume machines in Leiston.

In September 1977, Danny joined Sizewell A as a Craft Apprentice and moved across to the Sizewell B platoon as an Enhanced Handicraftsman in 1990 and has carried out a number of places within the station and more lately as the Conservation Director. Danny was born in Leiston and working locally has meant that he and his woman have been suitable to stay and raise a family in an area they love. Danny will retire coming month and hands over to Gavin Rousseau who joined Sizewell B as an apprentice thirty times ago Sizewell B straight from Alde Valley Academy, formerly Leiston High School, when he was 16.
