Fatdragon has given the most informative reply. My take is that of an observer; the German media ...

Any nuclear power plant is a potential for a disaster. I certainly wouldn't be comfortable with living close to an American designed on for example based on the almost routine accidents that occur in the USA and Japan. The number of accidents in France are not something to brag about either. However, a competent British engineer ought to be able to do a risk evaluation study on the design of any proposed nuclear plant regardless of which idiot designed it.

I think china needs to stop investing in the UK. They don't have the necessary political stability for long term projects, especially after the BREXIT.

Hinkley Point nuclear plant delayed at last moment

29 July

The government has announced an unexpected last-minute delay to plans to build the first new nuclear power station in the UK for more than 20 years, at Hinkley Point in Somerset.

The timing pulls the rug out from under the feet of French firm EDF, which agreed at a board meeting yesterday to build the plant, and "seems calculated to cause maximum impact", says the BBC's business editor, Simon Jack.

It had been expected that, after EDF made its decision yesterday, it would immediately sign agreements with the government. The firm has now cancelled a visit by chief executive Vincent de Rivaz to Hinkley Point today.

Construction of Hinkley Point C was first approved in March 2013. Two years later, EDF signed an agreement with China's state power firm CGN, which is to provide some 33.5 per cent of the finance.
In France, complaints have focused on the financial exposure of EDF, which is already in debt to the tune of tens of billions of euros.
