March Update
A round-up of the latest news from Hinkley Point C.
Reactor 1 standing tall
Ring Liner 2 Unit
March saw another major milestone met for the project as the second liner ring was lifted into place onto Unit 1’s reactor building by Big Carl. The steel ring forms part of the reactor building and was prefabricated on-site before being carefully transferred to its permanent position. The steel ring weighs 347-tonnes and forms part of the reinforced cylinder that will sit around Unit 1’s nuclear reactor. It represents an important step in the construction of the reactor building and allows for the next phase of work to take place on the surrounding structures.

Handover of first permanent building
Framatome Warehouse
The first permanent building completed at Hinkley Point C was officially handed over to its future occupants, Framatome. During the construction phase of HPC, the 3,500m2 Framatome Warehouse will store and prepare some of the most important components for the power station before installation. This achievement also marks the latest deliverable for the Balance of Plant team, who are responsible for managing the construction of many of the permanent buildings at HPC.
