Dean & Dyball wins Hinkley Point jetty contract

Energy giant EdF has awarded a £30M contract to Dean & Dyball to build a temporary sea jetty at the site of its proposed new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset.

The contract includes detailed engineering and on-shore and off-shore surveys prior to building the 500m long jetty, the pier head and associated on-shore structures.

The award is subject to a final decision from EDF to proceed with the Hinkley Point C power station, which is expected next month.

If it does go ahead, the jetty will be used to handle construction materials for the nuclear power station.

EDF Energy Hinkley Point C construction director Nigel Cann said: “The temporary jetty contract will help us get to work quickly and will reduce the impact of the construction of the proposed new nuclear power station on both the local community and the environment.”
