We produced a steel structure for the construction of the Hinkley C nuclear power plant in Somerset, UK. The power plant with two reactors with an output of 3200 MW was originally planned to be opened in 2017, but the construction is constantly being prolonged and the costs keep rising. Construction costs have already climbed to around £ 22.5 billion and it will take at least another 5 years before the power plant starts generating electricity.
It is the first new generation power plant and the largest construction project in the UK, employing 4,500 people and covering an area as large as 245 soccer fields. When completed, it will contain 3 million tonnes of concrete and 50,000 tonnes of steel.
Our delivery includes towers, platforms, footbridges and vertical conveyors that transport the excavated material to the surface with a vertical lift.
Total weight of delivered structures: 236 t
Category: Investment constructions
Destination country: United Kingdom
