About EDF Energy (Hinkley Point C)

The first new nuclear power station to be built in the UK in over 20 years; Hinkley Point C in Somerset will provide low-carbon electricity for around 6 million homes, create thousands of jobs and bring lasting benefits to the UK economy.

Construction and operation of Hinkley Point C will create 25,000 employment opportunities, up to 1,000 apprenticeships and 64% of the project’s construction value is predicted to go to UK companies. There are currently over 3,500 workers on site.

Marking a significant milestone in the revitalisation of our nuclear power industry, Hinkley Point C will make a major contribution to the UK’s move to reduce carbon emissions.

    Alexandra Ryan

    Tunnelling Shift Manager, Hinkley Point C Marine Works

    My name is Alexandra Ryan, I work for Balfour Beatty as a Spray Concrete Lining, SCL, tunnelling shift manager at Hinkley Point C project in Somerset.

    I have been working within the Mining & Tunnelling industry since I graduated from the Camborne School of Mines in 2013 and have been lucky enough to work in Africa, Australia and the United Kingdom.

    My core job is to ensure the safe and productive running of the SCL gang and technical team as part of a 24-hour operation to form a network of tunnels for HPC’s cooling water system.

    I couldn’t imagine working in another industry, being part of such a large and diverse project such as Hinkley point C is what I had always hoped for while I studied my mining engineering degree.
