Nuclear enineering company Assystem has been appointed to deliver engineering expertise for the construction of the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station. Through the professional services contract, Assystem will create 100 new jobs across advanced engineering, site engineering, commissioning, quality assurance and control, with development opportunities for new graduates and apprentices. The agreement follows the creation last week of 350 jobs for Hinkley Point C by Warrington-based Bilfinger. Assystem and Bilfinger are part of Hinkley Point C’s growing supply chain in the North West where almost 230 other companies are already involved in the project. New recruits will be mentored by senior Assystem engineers, who have first-hand experience in nuclear power plant new build, specifically the EPR fleet (Hinkley, Taishan, Olikiuoto, Flamanville).
