Refurbishment for Wharf
Combwich Wharf has been an essential element of the construction of both Hinkley Point A and B power stations. Now it is playing its part in the build of Hinkley Point C.
To facilitate the delivery of large pieces of equipment by sea, needed throughout construction and operation of the nuclear power station, the wharf is undergoing a refurbishment.
2020 will see the main phase of works for the wharf. Over the coming months, demolition of the Abnormal Loads Quay is planned to take place to reduce its height. Piling activity will then start, building the foundations for the transfer slab to sit on. So that construction traffic doesn’t need to go through Combwich itself, there is a dedicated private access road which goes around the village.
