Progress at Hinkley Point C Offshore – Video

An incredible summer of engineering is underway in the Bristol Channel, as Hinkley Point C’s offshore work nears completion.

 

Preparation for hammering the casing into the seabed

 

Six giant steel casings, which weigh 350t and are 40m long and 6m wide, have been installed, marking a significant step in the construction of the power station’s cooling water system.

They will form part of the vertical shafts which will connect the 5-miles of tunnels with the intake and outtake heads. These 5,000t structures were lowered onto the seabed last year and will circulate water to the nuclear reactors.
