Progress on permanent buildings
Work on the first of Hinkley Point C’s permanent buildings is well underway, giving an exciting glimpse of the shape of things to come for the power station.
Bouygues UK are constructing the Framatome warehouse which will store components during construction of the Nuclear Island, and will house workshops and storage facilities once Hinkley Point C comes online.
One of 16 permanent buildings to be built on site, the warehouse comprises a framework of more than 2,644 steel beams, which are being assembled by local company Haley Engineering.
Bouygues UK have also commenced work to the Simulator Building, which will act as a training centre for the nuclear scientists who will operate Hinkey Point C’s live reactors.
