Work starts at Shurton substation

Our contractor Linxon started to work at the substation at Hinkley Point in June 2019.

It will connect EDF Energy’s new nuclear power station into the national grid, delivering the first new nuclear energy to homes and business for a generation. The substation is within the boundary of EDF Energy’s site and will be operational by mid-2022.

All staff and contractors working on the substation will work under EDF Energy’s existing traffic and delivery management plans and our activities will be closely coordinated with theirs to reduce any impact on the local community.
