The EDF Hinkley Point C (HPC) project comprises the construction of a new twin-reactor nuclear power station near Bridgwater, Somerset and is currently in year three of a 10 year build. This £19.5bn station will replace existing Hinkley Point B, which is due to begin decommissioning in 2023, and will be the first time the European Pressurised-Water Reactor (EPR) design has been built in the UK.
EDF Energy Construction Technical Support team senior field geologist Gemma Sherwood will discuss her experience working on site during the enabling works phase of the construction while Atkins principal geotechnical engineer Mark Scorer will discuss his experience developing the detailed design of the Balance of Plant structures on HPC for EDF.
