Work starts at Shurton substation

We’ve appointed Linxon to build a substation at Hinkley Point.

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

EDF Energy has already prepared an area for us within the boundary of their site and construction started in June 2019.

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.
