Hinkley Point C

Project Overview

 

Laying the Foundation for the Future of UK Energy

Hinkley Point, situated near Bridgwater Somerset, has provided the UK with Nuclear power since 1965. The new power station, Hinkley Point C, is expected to provide more than 6% of the nation’s electricity once fully operational.

Extensive work has been planned to accommodate HPC, including a purpose-built residential campus for temporary construction workers, as well as a £16m investment in road and infrastructure upgrades to manage the increase in the traffic the site will generate.

Initiatives have also been set up to provide training programmes and partnerships with businesses to help young adults in the Somerset region with the science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills needed to take up a future at HPC.

The new power station has been designed to generate nuclear power for 60 years, with decommissioning expected to take around 20 years – meaning a career at HPC can provide a wealth of opportunity and job security for you and your family.

 

What is HPC?

 

  • – HPC is the third operation at EDF Energy’s Hinkley site.
  • – Hinkley Point A, now decommissioned, provided power to the nation until 1999.
  • – Hinkley Point B, still operational today, was the UK’s first Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor when it began generating power in 1976. The site employs 535 full-time EDF Energy employees and over 220 contract partners.
  • – HPC will create a new 3,200 MWe nuclear station with two EPR reactors – three million tonnes of concrete and 230,000 tonnes of steel reinforcements will be used in the construction process.
