Bylor JV seals Hinkley Point C contract

Hinkley Point C site prep 2014

EDF has awarded a contract to the Bylor JV of Bouygues Travaux Publics and Laing O’Rourke, for the construction of the buildings that will house the two European Pressurised Reactor (EPR) nuclear reactors at Hinkley Point C.

Bouygues Construction’s share of this contract s worth at least £1.49bn and the project will employ 3,500 at its peak.

“We are proud to have been selected by EDF for this extraordinary project, a choice that reflects Bouygues Construction’s expertise in the field of nuclear civil engineering,” said Bouygues Construction chairman and chief executive Philippe Bonnave. “We will be undertaking this project alongside Laing O’Rourke, our internationally renowned British partner. We share the same values and give the same priority to employee safety and the importance of skilled workers.”

Bouygues Construction has previously carried out the civil engineering contract for the EPR nuclear plant in Olkiluoto, Finland, in 2005, followed by that for the EPR plant in Flamanville, France, in 2006.
