The chief exec of French energy giant EDF is confident that the new nuclear plant in Somerset will be built, despite fresh delays.
The final investment decision on the £18 billion project at Hinkley Point has again been put back - waiting on a 60 day consultation with the company's workers.
Vincent de Rivaz, speaking to MPs on the Energy and Climate Change Committee, insisted the project was not on hold, and "everything was set" for power to be generated by 2025.
Mr de Rivaz added that EDF was not going to "give up" on Hinkley, although he realised people were worried.

This year's cricket T20 Blast began tonight, with Gloucestershire and Somerset both in action. It's the competition that makes the counties the most money, with sell-out crowds expected in Bristol and Taunton.
Somerset began with an away game in Kent tonight - losing by 8 wickets.
Gloucestershire started at home against Sussex, using their controversial floodlights for the first time. There has been lots of opposition to the lights that can be seen from around the city.
One resident told ITV News, "I think they're necessary for the cricket ground to get the matches they need to remain competitive. Without them we're told that they wouldn't get the games that they need. Unfortunately it does have a bit of a detrimental impact on the residents".
But tonight the main talking point was the rain - the match was abandoned and Sussex won by one run according to the Duckworth-Lewis method.
