Nuclear power plant

Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract by NNB GenCo to provide engineering and technical services to the Hinkley Point C (HPC) nuclear power plant under construction in Somerset, UK.

The contract falls under the new Hinkley Technical Support Alliance (HTSA) agreement and will last for five years with an option for an additional five years. Atkins will work collaboratively with HPC, and the other Alliance members Frazer-Nash Consultancy and Wood Group, to provide engineering and technical services across all elements of the HPC project.

Atkins is working on a diverse range of projects across HPC, including multi-disciplinary design, civil and structural design, site construction support, nuclear safety cases, environmental planning, and configuration management. Full construction at HPC began in September 2016, and as the UK's largest infrastructure project, it will play an important part in the UK's transition to a low carbon energy future, by powering six million homes and providing 7% of the UK's electricity.
