Plugged in - Summer 2020

J0 milestone achievement 

Less than a year after Hinkley Point C met one of its biggest project milestones – finishing the foundations for the first main reactor and surrounding buildings – it is celebrating the same milestone again for the second reactor. 

This ‘J0’ milestone marks the start of construction of the reactor buildings above ground.

Rob's welcome

Welcome to the Summer issue of Plugged in.

I’m sure many of our readers would agree that the pandemic has been a worrying time. Hinkley Point C has put significant changes in place to ensure the safety of our workers and the communities around the site.

Meanwhile, colleagues have been using their resources to support organisations across Somerset. You can find out more by reading our features on Coronavirus.

Despite the project scaling back to reduce workforce numbers and focus on key areas of construction, we have recently completed the second reactor's foundations. This is testament to the dedication of the project team, who have adjusted to new ways of working to meet this milestone – check out our J0 story for further information.

I hope you enjoy this issue. Please get in touch with the Plugged in team if you have feedback or story ideas.

Hinkley Point C Site Construction Director
