ONR Annual Report. NNB Generation Company (HPC) Limited (NNBGenCo HPC) is the licensee for the Hinkley Point C (HPC) twin EPR reactor site near Bridgewater in Somerset. Safety and security submissions have met our expectations and significant progress was made with the HPC project during 2016. NNB GenCo HPC submitted the interim safety case for the Technical Galleries to ONR in summer 2016 as scheduled. ONR assessed this alongside progress in other key elements of the project including: compliance with licence conditions; organisational capability; and progress in addressing GDA assessment findings. We granted our consent for the start of construction (Technical Galleries) in March 2017. NNB GenCo HPC is preparing the pre-construction safety report in advance of submission to ONR for assessment in mid-2017. This will detail the safety justification for construction of the reactor building, associated nuclear safety buildings and other intermediate structures.
