First of two giant Turbine Hall crane girders successfully delivered to site
The first of two giant Turbine Hall crane girders was recently successfully delivered to the Hinkley Point C site.
The girder that spans the width of a football pitch was moved from Avonmouth to Hinkley Point C last week. Once both girders are installed, they will be responsible for supporting the 300-tonne capacity overhead crane as it manoeuvres on rails up and down the Unit 1 Turbine Hall. The crane will be used for the assembly of the Steam Turbine and also for maintenance throughout the operational life of the power station.
