Building Hinkley Point C Nuclear Power Station

Digital Twin Hub > Digital Twins > Building Hinkley Point C Nuclear Power Station

Digital Twin Overview

In January 2008, the UK government gave the go-ahead to a new generation of nuclear power stations to be built, and in 2013, Hinkley Point C (HPC) was approved for construction. With an expected 10-year construction period, this massive project will provide low-carbon energy for around 6 million homes and be responsible for about 7% of the UK’s electricity. Currently, it is the largest infrastructure project in the UK with over 3,500 workers on site and an estimated total cost of about £20bn.
