In November ONR provided NNB GenCo with consent to commence the unit 1 Nuclear Island concrete pour at Hinkley Point C (HPC). The Nuclear Island will contain the unit 1 reactor building, the fuel building and the four electrical and safeguard divisions, on one common reinforced concrete base slab. This cross-shaped base slab is known as the common raft. ONR’s inspectors will continue to regulate NNB GenCo, to ensure that the high standards of safety and security expected in the UK are maintained at HPC.
