Latest footage shows the progress being made at Hinkley Point C

Hinkley Point C’s two nuclear reactors will help Britain achieve net zero. In 2020 huge efforts to make the site safe for workers and the community have allowed construction to continue. In the latest pictures of the project, you can see what’s been achieved.

The two units are rising out of the ground after the completion of the second reactor base this summer and unit one’s turbine hall is taking shape. Next to our huge crane Big Carl, you can see the factory bunkers where large amounts of prefabrication are taking place and under the sea our first cooling tunnel is nearing completion.
