The Bylor (Bouygues Laing O’Rourke) consortium working on the construction of Hinkley Point C nuclear power station is approaching a hold point next month (November) prior to the installation of M&E and HVAC systems at the site. The construction team at the power station project, which was given the green light to start five years ago, will have to gain approval for the next major phase of works from the regulator by proving that it has the arrangements and capability in place to move forward. Once the project enters the next phase, the number working on site could rise from 6,300 today to 8,500 over the next 18 months. So far, 800 apprentices have also been trained on the project.
