The first five of 156 tanks have been installed at the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station, under construction in Somerset. The milestone marks the start of physical works being delivered by the MEH Alliance of Altrad, Balfour Beatty Bailey, Cavendish Nuclear and Doosan Babcock. The MEH Alliance has a £986m contract with EDF Energy to deliver the mechanical, electrical, heating and ventilation works for the Hinkley Point C project. The walled-in are designed to contain, store, distribute and prepare various fluids in support of reactor operations. A further 24 tanks are expected to be installed in 2020, the MEH Alliance said.
