Hinkley Point C update; September 2023 [–video]

The first reactor building will soon be capped with a giant steel dome

While Hinkley Point C is not set to start generating electricity before June 2027, two years behind schedule, there is still plenty going on.

The video shows how 10,000 workers a day are approaching the next major engineering feat, when Sarens’ Big Carl crane will lift the 245-tonne steel dome to close the first reactor building.

The camera goes several miles under the seabed to see the final stages in the completion of the cooling water intakes. It also shows work on the 50-metre tall turbine hall, which will house the world’s largest Arabelle turbine.

Work to fit the miles of cables, pipes and equipment is also well under way. 

Hinkley Point C is being developed by EDF of France with China General Nuclear as its junior partner.

On completion, the two 1600 MWe nuclear reactors of Hinkley Point C are expected to generate enough electricity to power six million homes.

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
