EDF has confirmed that it will award Bilfinger a contract to construct the new generator turbine at Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant. Bilfinger will be expected to lead the installation works for the nuclear steam supply system. The system, which will be confirmed at the end of the year, will generate the steam needed to drive the turbine generator unit and ultimately produce energy. EDF program director for Hinkley Point C Simon Parsons said: “We are looking forward and hope to continue our collaboration with Bilfinger on this pioneering project. “The company’s proven expertise with large-scale nuclear projects will enable safe, high-quality and timely construction of major components of Hinkley Point C.” Bilfinger has been working on the Hinkley Point C project since 2018.
