Construction Work has restarted at Hinkley Point

Main construction work on the UK’s first nuclear power plant in a generation could begin as early as December. EDF also have a delegation in China negotiating contracts for the manufacture of pressure vessel and other key components.
Some of the largest diggers in Europe have been moved onto the Hinkley Point proposed C site and contractors have been told to prepare to start on site in December. Firms appointed to various roles on the mega-project include Laing O’Rourke, Bouygues, Costain, Kier, Bam Nuttall and Dean & Dyball, a subsidiary of Balfour Beatty

However rumour is that EDF and the Chinese investors are falling out and Areva (the other state funded French nuclear firm) is collapsing…….
