Nuclear roundup

The cost of enabling works at the new Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant has more than doubled to £203M. The Kier BAM joint venture has agreed a deal to restart enabling works at the site on the contract which was originally valued at £100M.Work had been stopped in April but will now restart following last week’s funding agreement between EDF Energy and the China General Nuclear Corporation.

Rolls-Royce has won £100M worth of contracts to supply the new nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point. EDF has selected the firm to supply heat exchangers worth £25M. And in partnership with Nuvia, Rolls-Royce will also supply systems to treat nuclear waste in a contract worth £75M.
