Greg Clark visits Hinkley Point C

Helping to mark 250 apprentices on the project

Business Secretary Greg Clark, along with Energy Minister Richard Harrington and French Ambassador Jean-Pierre Jouyet, visited the Hinkley Point C construction site and met some of the 250 apprentices who have worked on the project so far.

Hinkley Campus, our on-site accommodation, opened its doors to HPC workers in June. The state-of-the-art 510-bed facility is the culmination of much hard work and collaboration from our supply chain contractors.

The facility managed by HOST, a newly established business consortium of local suppliers who have come together to service the campus accommodation, is in size comparable to Europe’s second-largest hotel establishment (when Sedgemoor Campus also comes online later this year).

Stuart Crooks, Managing Director of Hinkley Point C, said: “The project is making great progress and is on track to hit its first major milestone on time next year.”

“It is already making a significant positive impact on British industry, employment and skills, and I am delighted that we have already seen our 250th apprentice join the team.” “We are developing talent that will have a long-term benefit for industry and the UK’s industrial capacity and we are determined to deliver the low-carbon energy Britain needs, with a relentless focus on quality.”
