Engineer appointed for Hinkley Point jetty
EDF Energy has selected Hampshire-based Dean & Dyball Civil Engineering to build a temporary jetty at the site of its proposed nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset.
The 500-metre jetty will be built at a cost of £30 million, subject to a final decision from EDF to proceed with the project.
The jetty will take 120 people to build and allow materials for the proposed Hinkley Point C station to be delivered by sea.
Each ship-load will take 250 lorries off local roads.
