Hinkley Point C announces the launch of the Technical Support Alliance to provide engineering and technical services to the nuclear new build project
The Hinkley Point C Project has announced the launch of a new multi-million pound technical and engineering services agreement (The HTSA) which comprises existing Tier 1 services suppliers Atkins, Frazer-Nash Consultancy and Wood plc.
The Hinkley Point C project successfully delivered J-0, the completion of the nuclear island “common raft” for its first unit in June 2019, in line with the schedule announced in September 2016. Following this major milestone a detailed review of the project’s costs, schedule and organisation was performed.
Hinkley Point C has hit its biggest milestone yet on schedule. The completion of the base for the first reactor, known as “J-zero”, means that the construction of the nuclear buildings above ground can now begin in earnest.
