This is a 'sealed tour' which will take our group on to the construction site (via the provided coach/minibus). Hinkley Point C is one of the largest and most complex projects in Europe and will take 10 years to complete. It will be the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK.
The design of the UK EPRs that will be built at Hinkley Point C represent a major development on previous PWRs, making them amongst the safest and most efficient civil nuclear power generators ever designed.
The UK EPR design marks significant progress towards sustainability. It has been designed to use less uranium and produce almost a third less long-lived radioactive wastes compared with water reactors in operation today.
