Hinkley Point C Project September 2023 Update from EDF – Video

Hinkley Point C has released a new video showing the latest progress in the construction of the new nuclear power station.

The film shows how 10,000 workers are busy working towards the next major engineering feat, when Big Carl will lift the 245t steel dome on top of the first reactor building.

The tour goes out several miles under the seabed, to see the final stages in the completion of the cooling water intakes.

It also shows work on the 50m 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 underway.

More than £5bn has been spent with companies across the South West and 3,700 British companies have contracts with the project. The power station will provide 7% of the UK’s electricity, with reliable, low-carbon electricity, and will be vital in helping Britain achieve net zero and stronger energy security.
