There are more than 4,000 workers on site at Hinkley Point C and they are all under virtually constant surveillance. G4S, which has the site security contract for client EDF Energy, has revealed the scale of its operations on the £20bn construction project. G4S has a team of 180 specially-trained guards on the project – it calls them enhanced security officers – and roughly half are ex-military, including ex-Marines, Special Forces and Gurkhas. Some walk the beat across the 430-acre site, while others keep watch from a central control room. In a temporary building near the centre of the 430-acre site, officers sit in the security control room monitoring hundreds of remotely operated cameras and an advanced perimeter detection system. They are in constant communication with mobile patrols around the site.
