First Concrete Pour at Hinkley Power Station

Bouygues/Laing O’Rourke has got the go-ahead to start pouring concrete on the first key structures for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station.

Bouygues/Laing O’Rourke has got the go-ahead to start pouring concrete on the first key structures for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station.

The Office for Nuclear Regulation has approved first structural concrete for the ‘technical galleries’ of the power station.

These are a series of underground reinforced concrete structures to be located beneath the site and some above-ground structures, connecting services such as cooling water and electricity to the two reactor units and other structures.

Up to now the on-site construction activities have been limited to preparatory and enabling works, including the construction of several concrete batching plants and aggregate stores.

Following First Nuclear Safety Concrete, the site workforce will grow rapidly to several thousand.
