Construction work on Somerset's Hinkley Point is to begin "within weeks" after a multi-billion pound deal between French energy giant EDF and China's CGN was unveiled this afternoon.
The agreement, reached after months of talks, priced the power plant at £18 billion - which was £6 billion less than expected.
Hinkley, which is already years behind schedule, has been given a revised start date of 2025. Initially it was planned to open in 2017.
Chairman of EDF, Jean Bernard Levy, called the signing "a big step forward" for the group's partnership with the Chinese.
"We are planning for a final investment decision within weeks so that we can move forward with construction."
