Hinkley Supply Chain Programme

The Hinkley Supply Chain Programme

The Hinkley Supply Chain Programme is a funded support programme developed to help South West and South Wales based SME’s (small/medium enterprises) who wish to target upcoming Hinkley Point C (HPC) opportunities.

The Heart of the South West and West of England Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and the Welsh Government have allocated substantial funds to deliver the Hinkley Supply Chain Programme over a three-year period. The aim is to support local companies by preparing them for upcoming HPC project opportunities, to increase their chances of winning future contracts.

As HPC moves forward, many contracts will be awarded throughout the remaining 8-year construction period, and also during the following 60+ years of operation and de-commissioning. The Hinkley Supply Chain Programme is delivered by our experienced team, consisting of a partnership between Somerset Chamber of Commerce, SWMAS and Business West  and offers eligible companies targeted business support to maximise their chances of joining the HPC Supply Chain.

Is your company eligible, follow our simple flow chart to find out? For more information call the team on 01823 443425.
