Powering up Hinkley Point C with ‘nuclear concrete’

Teka Maschinenbau GmbH, 67480 Edenkoben, Germany

EDF Energy’s Hinkley Point C is the first of a new generation of power stations to be built in the UK. It is the biggest construction site in Europe, providing 25,000 jobs over the lifetime of the project. Once operational, it will employ 900 people and generate seven per cent of the UK’s low-carbon electricity. Because of the nature of the project, the concrete used to construct it must be of the very highest quality – ‘nuclear concrete’ is the term that’s been coined to describe it. It is being produced by Hanson Aggregates on behalf of project contractor Bylor, a joint venture of construction giants Bouygues and Laing O’Rourke.
