Construction has stepped up following the subsiding of the pandemic, with around 8,000 people now working on site.

Realising the socio-economic benefits

Hinkley Point C is making incredible progress in terms of construction, but we are also making sure the project benefits people in the South West and beyond. The benefits range from increasing local employment, to the development of a sustainable regional supply chain and the advancement of new training facilities and qualifications.

£4.1 billion spent with companies in the South West to date

922 apprentices trained on the project to date

22,000 people in Britain working on the project

£24 Million invested directly into education, skills and employment

Supporting the environment

Hinkley Point C’s contribution to fighting climate change means that during its 60 years of operation it will have a large, positive impact on the environment.

Sustainability and environmental protection are also key features in the construction itself. New techniques are being used whilst a team of environmental specialists are helping to enhance local biodiversity and habitats, supporting nature to thrive on land that had been intensively used in agriculture.
